Fifteen feature film and creative documentary projects have been selected for participation. Writers, directors and producers will develop their projects and receive professional training, working in three groups led by Eric Collins (France), Karol Griffiths (United Kingdom/US) and Gualberto Ferrari (France/Argentina). The seven-day session will be followed by a coached three-month re-writing period and a follow-up session.

Guest adviser Paul Tyler will provide creative tools. The visionary developer, consultant and mentor from the United Kingdom will illuminate new approaches. Applying his concept Handling Ideas, Paul will work with each of the groups, providing creative tools and individual advice.

Ludger Pfanz – Future Narratives
The German filmmaker and digital pioneer will focus on Space-Time Narratives / The DNA of Storytelling – Film versus Immersive Media. How can we tell stories in space? How can we create story-worlds with an active and interacting audience? Immersive Media (3D, VR, Games and Mixed Reality) is able to effectively blur the line between reality and illusion, pushing the limits of our imagination and opening new fields for screenwriters and storytellers. Professor Ludger Pfanz is Head and Founder of Expanded Cinema 3Digital Laboratory, 3D Alliance Karlsruhe and the festival BEYOND.
