The international training workshop TSFM Word-Frame happens over a series of workshops, both set in Italy and in several different European countries. The second workshop of 2021 will take place in Uppsala from 27th—31st of October. A final, conclusive workshop will be held on-site during Torino Short Film Market Volume 6 in December.
TSFM Word-Frame is an intensive workshop aimed at short film directors and screenwriters, developed by Massimiliano Nardulli, Massimo D’orzi and Enrico Vannucci. Through both theoretical and practical training based on a successfully tested methodology, the selected filmmakers will be motivated to confront each other developing their respective short film projects over the course of five days.
The workshop at Uppsala will take place from 27th-31st of October during the 40th edition of the Uppsala Short Film Festival and will be dedicated to emerging directors and/or scriptwriters from the region. The intensive workshop is organised in collaboration with FC Open The Doors and will guide the participants to the creation of a fiction or hybrid short film.
For each workshop, one participant will be chosen by the tutors to ultimately attend the final session in Turin. This six-days long conclusive workshop in December will focus on building production strategies for each short film project and will lead up to a pitching session and one-to-one meetings with producers and industry professionals.
A prime objective of this final workshop is to create networks between Italian and European filmmakers coming from different backgrounds and other film professionals. Torino Short Film Market strongly believes that international networking can bring huge benefits to participants, as TSFM Word-Frame will be facilitating and accelerating not only the production and realisation of their work-in-progress projects, but also the promotion through festivals and broadcasting & online circuits.
TSFM Word-Frame is part of FC Open The Doors — a project by FilmCentrum Riks and FilmCentrum Syd, with support from the Swedish Arts Council.
Torino Short Film Market Vol. 6 is set to take place on-site (1.12—3.12) and online from November 29th until December 10th, 2021. Accreditations are now open.
