Atelier Farnese requests screenwriting fund
The Atelier Farnese of July 3-4 ended with the proposal to create a special screenwriting fund on the part of French and Italian institutions. The meeting was held between producers of both countries in Grottaferrata (near Rome) to further develop the first Italian-French screenwriting lab presented at the latest Cannes Film Festival.
The Atelier Farnese is promoted by the French Embassy in Italy, in coordination with Sviluppo Lazio SpA and created thanks to efforts from the Lazio Region, the General Cinema Direction of the Italian Ministry of Culture, the CNC, the Region Ile-de France and SACD. Other partners include the Roma & Lazio Film Commission and Commission du Film d’Ile de France.
Participants included Tilde Corsi (R&C Produzioni); Michel Reilhac (Arte France Cinema); Andrea Occhipinti (Lucky Red); Caroline Benjo and Carole Scotta (Haut et Court); Fabio Conversi (Babe Films); Raphael Berdugo (Roissy Films); Agnese Fontana (Ager 3); Amedeo Pagani (Classic Film); Fabrizio Mosca (Acaba Produzione); Francesco Pamphili (Film Kairòs); Enrico della Rosa (Audiovisual Advisor to the French Embassy in Italy); Riccardo Neri (Lupin Film); Jean-Denis Le Dinahet (Madakai); Francesco Alessi, Philippe Quinsac and Claudia Bedogni (Cinecittà Luce), Niccolò Stazzi (Eurofilm); Federico Saraceni (Ideaproduzione); Cristina Priarone (Roma Lazio Film Commission); and Jean Gili and Olivier Lorelle (UGS).
Italian and French writers, screenwriters and directors who are part of the Atelier will meet again in the regions of Lazio in October 2009 and Ile-de-France in 2010.
