ACCONTI #12 | IDM Script Lab is an exclusive script-writing laboratory, designed to develop only four projects with a high production potential. This very selective and restricted environment enables participants to explore new approaches to storytelling with the support of high-profile international experts, chosen on the basis of the specificity of each project.


Writers can apply together with a producer as a team, and work with creative advisors to facilitate the deep exploration needed to fully realise their material. The project must have an independent producer or a production company attached, as the main goal of the full program is to dive deep into the writing and productive process.

The final pitching session will be hosted at INCONTRI #13, IDM Film Conference.

Participants will mainly work in group sessions, where they can discuss their work and develop their projects with the help of a creative team of talented writers. Furthermore, one-to-one meetings with high-profile international experts will encourage the creative processes necessary to achieve the best possible result from strong stories.

Four projects will be selected and participants are given tailored guidance in developing the script and the visual style of their respective projects, drafting a financing and distribution strategy, and finding international partners.


Deadline for applications is June 9, 2023.
