REALNESS – Screenwriters residency – Résidence d’écriture
Urucu Media, under the mentorship of Berlinale Talents, in partnership with The Nirox Foundation, Durban Filmmart, Restless Talent Management, The French Institute in South Africa and Institute Français’s Cinémas du Monde proudly presents REALNESS, a screenwriters residency for a new generation of African cinema.
From June to August 2016, 5 screenwriters will be invited to attend a seven-week residency to develop a new draft of their original feature screenplays. The aim of REALNESS is to provide the continent’s best emerging writing talents with the necessary time, space and support to develop their unique cinematic vision.
While the residency will be conducted in English, REALNESS aims to accommodate non-English speaking participants by providing consultation in French and/or Portuguese where necessary.
Please note, the submission window is from 1 November 2015 – 31 January 2016 (or until 120 applications have been received, whichever comes first)
The call is open to screenwriters from across the African continent and selection will be based on artistic merit. REALNESS will hold no legal claim over the work once the residency is completed.
All submitted material must be in English however, screenplays written in French or Portuguese will also be accepted (with all supporting documents in English).
A committee appointed by Urucu and their partners will read the project entries and conduct interviews with a shortlist of candidates early in March. The REALNESS selection will be announced at an event hosted by the pavilion Les Cinemas du Monde in Cannes, 2016.
