Starting in June 2021, this 9-months feature film development program will enable scriptwriters to finish their scripts (or drafts of scripts) starting from the treatment stage. The course will feature two multiday residence-sessions with writers rooms, masterclasses and discussions (on several locations in the province of Limburg, the Netherlands), online sessions with script consultants and networking and pitching sessions during filmfestivals. The decision-makers are producer Hans de Wolf & screenwriter Chris Westendorp. The coaches of the 2021 edition are Sander Burger, Rogier de Blok and Anne Gensior.
