Moonstone in Leipzig


Moonstone, an advanced project based training and development programme for experienced writers and directors, has just opened an Eastern outpost in Leipzig.

Moonstone International Screen Labs was created in 1997 in consultation with Robert Redford’s Sundance Institute. By extending to Eastern Europe, this programme, supported by MEDIA, which regularly organises workshops for selected professionals, renews its commitment to support the work of European independent screenwriters and directors of vision, thus helping a new generation of film-makers to emerge.
From now on, Moonstone East, supported by the regional fund Mitteldeutsche Medienforderung Gmb (MDM), will work as an exchange platform for film professionals from Central and Eastern Europe. The new Leipzig branch will be managed by Gabriele Brunnenmeyer, a specialist of the German and East-European film industry. She will therefore leave the position she has had since 1997 as head of the Berlin-Brandenburg antenna of the MEDIA Programme. However, she remains the artistic director of the German Cottbus Festival, dedicated to Central and Eastern European cinema (and for which she has been working since 2000).
The first German Screen Lab organised by Moonstone East is about to start. This workshop focused on script-writing will take place from the 16th to the 22d of April.
