The Drama Series Co-Writing Residency between Israel and France is a program initiated by the CNC (Centre National du Cinéma et de l’Image animée), France and the GMFF (Gesher Multicultural Film Fund), Israel, in cooperation with the Israeli Scriptwriters Guild, The Israeli Producers Association and the French Embassy in Israel. Series Mania is one of the main partners of the project.

4 projects have been selected to take part in the 2021 Residency. Each project is carried by a team composed by at least two screenwriters, one from Israel and one from France.  

The 10 selected participants take part in 3 workshops, two virtual and one in Lille, during the Creative Bazaar. The teams co-write the full bible of a fiction series in the next coming months. 

During all this period, the selected teams are trained by experienced tutors: Benjamin Dupas and Ronit Weiss-Berkowitz, with whom they have regular online exchanges and whom they will have the opportunity to meet in person at the Creative Bazaar.

The Residency will end with a pitching event at the Series Mania Forum followed later in September by a roundtable during the Haifa Film Festival
