Over the course of one week, UGC Writers Campus will function as an incubator, where writers will be immersed in an environment dedicated to their work with incredible access to tutors, mentors and industry decision-makers.
From May 27-31, the participants will have the opportunity to take part in workshops and masterclasses in the presence of experienced professionals who will serve and support them as mentors in the development of their projects. From June 1-3, as part of Series Mania Forum, these emerging writers will be able to pitch their projects in front of the international industry professionals who will be in Lille for the Forum.
"Today, we see an increasing demand from the industry toward screenwriters. In this context, Series Mania, with the UGC Writers Campus, is honored to support and strengthen an international network of young writers who are able to offer high quality projects, while at the same time working together for the future of our audiovisual industry. The stories to come will certainly be local, but thus more open to co-production opportunities,” commented Herszberg together with Brigitte Maccioni, Deputy Managing Director of UGC.
