Do you want to participate in a 10-day intensive screenwriting course with two months mentoring? The Screenwriters’ Talent Campus 2015 is focused on your creative talent with professional development, career advancement and the practical business of screenwriting.

The Screenwriters’ Talent Campus want you to get your work produced. To that end they have four clear objectives at the Talent Campus.
