The Script Station is one of the Berlinale Talent Campus hands-on training programmes | 01.09.2020

Ten writer/directors receive the opportunity to work closely with consultants to fine-tune their screenplays, deepen their stories and bring precision and life to their pages.

Ten selected screenwriters and directors participating in Berlinale Talents are offered project development with regards to concept, story structure and creative issues to help improve their particular project. Script Station also aims at creating a network of screenwriters who will be able to benefit from each other‘s experiences and from the input of our mentors.

During the week, participants take part in an intensive project development day with their group followed by one-on-one meetings with a designated script consultant. They get to work on their project description and treatment in preparation for the public presentation at the Talents Labs Presentation at the European Film Market. Afterwards they have the chance to meet with directors and producers. Apart from their time spent at Script Station the selected filmmakers will participate in the Summit programme of Berlinale Talents.

Who can apply?
The Script Station is for directors and screenwriters who have written scripts for at least two short films, a feature-length film or a series that have either screened internationally, won awards, or been broadcast on television or online. The main focus here is on developing your screenplay – not to help find a director, producer, funding, budget advice or co-production meetings. It’s about the story, pure and simple. The Script Station is open to Berlinale Talents alumni who have not yet participated in this lab.
