2014-15 Edition

Puglia Experience


PugliaExperience is a travelling screenwriter’s workshop for professional TV and film writers. It is a highly specialised training programme which meets two key aims of the Apulia Film Commission Foundation: promoting film and TV production in Apulia and supporting training in specific skills.


Apulia Film Commission Foundation is organising the fourth edition of “AAW Puglia Experience”, a workshop for sixteen (16) professional scriptwriters from all over the world. PugliaExperience 2013 is an itinerant scriptwriting workshop for professional scriptwriters from all over the world.

Hart, author of many films, such as “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” by Francis Ford Coppola and assisted by special guests as Claire Dobbin, international script editor, chairperson of the Melbourne International Film Festival and Christopher Vogler, veteran story consultant for major Hollywood film companies and author of “The Writer’s Journey” and “Memo from the Story Department”.

This edition of the workshop is organised in partnership with eQuinoxe Europe e.V., an independent, non-profit association founded in 2001 to support European filmmakers on an international level.

It will end with a final pitching session with a panel of international film and TV producers.
