Building upon the partnership established in 2022, Tatino Films is poised to embark on another collaborative venture with Netflix, aimed at bolstering support for writers through an array of innovative programmes. Recently, Tatino Films finalised an agreement with the streamer, solidifying its position as one of its global creative allies.

This signifies that Tatino Films will unveil a series of initiatives starting this year to provide comprehensive support to writers worldwide who are engaged in crafting future content for Netflix.

Specifically, European film talents hailing from France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, and Poland will benefit from these endeavours. Additionally, writers from Brazil, India, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, and Turkey will also have the opportunity to participate in these enriching programmes, further enhancing the diversity and global reach of creative voices in the entertainment industry.

We are very proud as well for Tatino Films to become one of the global creative partners of Netflix’s talent development initiatives in 2024, together with such a prestigious institution as the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts.

"I believe that there’s something unique in our approach to how we foster creative frameworks that are both safe and challenging while embracing diversity wholeheartedly. I take pride in the fact that our team and our mentors truly have such a wide scope of backgrounds and expertise, setting the conditions for storytelling breakthroughs, and reflecting the diverse audiences internationally as well.
