TETA Association launches the third edition of Pustnik - the European Screenwriters Residence, which will take place between 02 and 10 september 2017. Pustnik is the only Romanian initiative of this sort, meant to develop a creative and interactive environment, dedicated to young and emerging filmmakers in Europe.
During this nine-day retreat, eight screenwriters (three from Romania and five from Europe) will be given the opportunity to develop their own fiction feature films and pitch their projects to the invited producers.
Filmmakers, of 18 to 35 years of age, can apply with stories in different stages of development (synopsis, exposé or treatment). They are required to have written at least one short film which has screened at an international film festival and to be working during the residency on their first long-feature project.
The dead-line for applications is 18th of June 2017. Any information regarding the application process can be found in the How to apply section.
The eight filmmakers will be selected by Andreea Borțun (writer/director, Romania) and Bryn Chainey (writer/director, Great Britain/Australia), co-founders of PUSTNIK and Lavinia Cioacă (film critic, Romania).
