    The program accepts both limited or ongoing long form series

    The selected projects go through an intensive 3-module program and are built from the “bottom-up”: the training focuses on defining the series concept and theme, completing the pilot, creating season arc, season outlines, pitching documents and a financing strategy. 

    The projects will be showcased and pitched within the Season Finale platform in Tallinn, Estonia, within Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event

    The best series project receives the HBO Europe Award of 5.000 USD.  

    The program schedule and the form of the organization inevitably depend on the development of the coronavirus pandemic situation.

    The training also includes online consultations with tutors in between the workshops.

    1800 EUR per participant for the whole training.

    The tuition, board and accommodation is offered within the participation fee. Travel costs should be covered by the participants themselves.
