Apulia Film Commission organized the second weekly part of the Screenwriting Workshop “Greece-Puglia Experience”, from 9 to 15 October 2019 at Bari Cineporto.
After the successful first week organized by the Ionian University in Ioannina (Greece) on 6-12 September 2019, the itinerant workshop moves to Bari, where 15 ascendant cinema screenwriters from all over the world will continue attending intensive courses towards the development of their personal scenario, inspired by the atmosphere and the beauties of Puglia. The last weekly sequence of the workshop will be held in Corfu in November 2019.
The artistic director of this educational event is the worldwide famous, award-winning director Alexander Avranas. Under his supervision, highly experienced tutors (Spyros Verykios – Ionian University Assistant Professor and the awarded writers/directors Dimitrios Giatzouzakis and Stavros Pampalis) taught and supervised the workshop participants, helping and guiding them towards the successful development of state-of-the-art scenarios.
The CIAK project, funded for around 900.000 euro by Interreg V-A Greece-Italy Programme 2014-2020, aims to promote the territory of the involved regions (Regions of Ionian Islands, Western Greece and Epirus in Greece and Puglia Region in Italy), through initiatives linked to the cinema and audiovisual sector.
