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.
The Drama Series Co-Writing Residency between Israel and France has launched its second call for projects in September 2020!
5 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 12 selected participants will take part in 2 workshops, one in France and one in Israel. The teams will co-write the full bible of a fiction series in the next coming months. During all this period, the selected teams will be trained by experienced tutors with whom they will have regular online exchanges (emails, online video sessions….). They will have the opportunity to meet the tutors during the two workshops.
At the end of this process, the participants will meet with potential international financial partners: producers, broadcasters, platforms…
