Regional screenwriting workshops (09-09-2021)

From october 15th till november 6th

After the large success of the screenwriting workshops (SWWS) organized in 2020 and 2021, the French Embassy in Bahrain, in partnership with the Saudi Film Festival, is excited to launch its first regional SWWS. This 4 weeks hands-on workshop will be an opportunity for young Bahraini and Saudi filmmakers to significantly improve their screenwriting skills.

The purpose of this program is to support short film projects from start to finish.

A French expert from Screenwriters Republic will run the first outing of SWWS. She’ll coach the filmmakers so they’ll complete their short-film screenplay and make it ready for producers.

After four weeks of workshop, the jury will review all the screenplays and choose a winning script. The winner will have the opportunity to shoot his or her own movie in partnership with the Bahrain or Saudi-based production companies Blu Steel Films and BoX7.
