SCREENWRITERS &
SCREENWRITERS &
DIRECTORS LABS
The Screenwriters Lab aims to support exceptional narratives in
            all genres by emerging filmmakers from around the world. The Lab is
            curated to offer 8-10 fellows the opportunity to work on their first
            or second feature film scripts, under the guidance of established
            film professionals (advisors).

Alongside the Screenwriters Lab, the Directors Lab supports the fellows as they direct a scene from their scripts, preparing them for the challenge of conveying the emotions from the page to the screen.

The Screenwriters & Directors Labs operate under the guidance of Artistic Director Athina Rachel Tsangari (TRIGONOMETRY, CHEVALIER), and a community of celebrated film professionals who act as Advisors, such as Maren Ade (TONI ERDMANN), Michael Almereyda (TESLA), Paul Thomas Anderson (LICORICE PIZZA), Ritesh Batra (PHOTOGRAPH), Lisa Cholodenko (RITA), Willem Dafoe (NIGHTMARE ALLEY), Mati Diop (ATLANTICS), Naomi Foner (VERY GOOD GIRLS), Ulrich Köhler (A VOLUNTARY YEAR), Nick Kroll (BIG MOUTH), Jeff Nichols (LOVING), Olivier Père (Executive director, Arte France Cinema & director of film acquisitions, ARTE France), Eva Stefani (DAYS AND NIGHTS OF DIMITRA K), Lulu Wang (THE FAREWELL), Michael Weber (Founder & Director of THE MATCH FACTORY) and others.

The open call for Greek candidates for the 2022 Screenwriters and Directors Labs is now closed. The international submissions are by invitation only.
