East Europeans gather for ScriptTeast

Polish Film Institute runs workshop in Berlin

BERLIN — Eastern European scribes began gathering in Berlin Friday for a three-day workshop called ScriptTeast, organized by the Polish Film Institute.

Launched during Cannes last year, ScriptTeast is a project-based training program, designed for experienced scribes from Eastern and Central Europe.

Nine-month long program started with a workshop in Poland in September and the three-day meeting during the Berlinale will be an evaluation session of the work done so far.

The winner will be announced after the final workshop in Cannes this May and receive a $12,000 check and the Krysztof Kieslowski Award for the best Eastern and Central European script.

Among the 15 projects that have been selected for the first round of ScriptTeast are Jacek Gasiorowski’s “Musical Chairs” and Maciej Dutkiewicz’s “Tell Me the Truth About Love.”
