ScripTeast - 10 Years: Focus on Poland


Film New Europe and Independent Film Foundation are celebrating the 10th anniversary of ScripTeast with a series of weekly interviews with scriptwriters and key players involved in ScripTeast activity.

We start by talking to ScripTeast's initiators, Dariusz Jablonski, the Artistic Director of the Independent Film Foundation, and Violetta Kaminska, the Managing Director of the Independent Film Foundation.

IFF was established in 1999 and since its inception it organized the Polish Film Awards Eagles. In 2006 the Foundation launched ScripTeast, an annual programme for experienced script developers, whose task is to help writers from this part of Europe to overcome obstacles they encounter and increase competitiveness, write screenplays and promote them among the best European producers.
