EKRAN+ is a training programme focusing on the creative pre-production process and based on shooting practice. Each participating project is represented by a Creative Team consisting of a director (or scriptwriter-director), scriptwriter (or co-writer), director of photography and producer.

The participants are working on the development of the scripts/treatments and producing scenes from each project under the guidance of renowned international filmmakers. By working on scene in practice they will find out what style works best for their story. This programme offers directors the unique opportunity to receive direct feedback on their work on set.

The programme consists of three modules:
1st session: April 24 to 28, 2023 (online)
2nd session: June 20 to 28, 2023 (on-site in Warsaw, Poland)
3rd session: September 4 to 5, 2023 (online) 

Each Creative Team will finish the EKRAN+ course with a well-developed treatment or first draft of the script and a scene demonstrating the tone, genre and visual language of the project. The participants can use the completed scene as a demo/pilot, a visual material to accompany the script, which can be helpful in finding partners and funding sources for the film.

Due to FOCAL’s partnership with Wajda Studio and Wajda School, one Swiss team is selected and can participate in the programme.
