The International Screenwriters Workshops are for screenwriters who have had minimum one feature length script pro- duced or equivalent experience. The workshops only deal with screenplays for the cin- ema. The workshops are held in different European countries.

The goals of the workshop are: • To get the best possible results out of strong stories with an inherent cultural identity. • To enable talented screenwriters to learn from the best in the business.

Participants receive 3-4 days of creative tuition, with the remainder focussing on business development, alongside 1-1 advisor/writer meetings. Further information can be found at

Screenplays should be at an advanced stage of development, preferably ca. third draft, in order to maximise the one-to-one meetings with the advisors. • Manitoba Writers who have had at least one script produced factual or dramatic

(or equivalent experience) are eligible to apply. • Screenplays for cinema (Drafts are not accepted). • There are no fees for the selection process. • Producer must be attached. • Scripts submitted in industry-standard format and pagination. • If your project is invited, travel, food and lodging for the writers
