Enriching the Italian serial scene with new creativity, diversity of voices and inclusive points of view. This is the declared objective of the project “The Screenwriting Workshop”, the initiative of Premio Solinas and Netflix, aimed at young authors representing Italian multiculturalism who wish to develop stories for TV series.
The Screenwriting Workshop is aimed at aspiring screenwriters aged between 18 and 35, of any nationality, with residence or domicile in Italy.
After an initial selection, up to a maximum of twenty, the selected projects will have access to an initial orientation workshop, which will allow the authors to meet the jurors, present and discuss their projects with them.
At the end, up to a maximum of ten projects will be selected, which will receive a scholarship of €2,500 each to take part in an advanced training workshop, with coaching sessions and master classes with Italian and international professionals.
This experience will enable the authors to refine their knowledge and writing skills and take the next step: writing a pilot of their project.
At the end of the workshop, the jurors will analyse the new materials received and select a first and a second project considered particularly deserving.
The first selected project will be awarded the €6,000 prize of “The Screenwriting Workshop”.
The two most interesting proposals will also receive a proposal to work as assistants in a writers’room of a serial project in which Netflix is involved.
