This day is dedicated to independent series production. Creators, festival directors and producers will talk about all aspects of independent filmmaking: funding, production, distribution, and, most important, aesthetics, style, and creators’ visions.

Address: Lahnstraße 9, 35578 Wetzlar

Workshop Scriptwriting – where do I start and what's down the road?

Nicole Fornoff, author and leading actress of "Emma’s World", and the creators of “MEM”, Thomas Meudt, Christian Stadach and Stephan Zimmermann of Tag & Nacht Media, will take you on a journey through their very personal set of tools, tricks and experiences. Whether it is post-its on the window, character development on the subway or successful governmental script funding... the four will stop at nothing to share everything they learned with lots of trial and error, blood, sweat and tears during the past few years.
