The Owl aims to introduce unique voices to the international film and TV market. We’re committed to supporting professional writers with a diverse range of backgrounds and identities.
Entries are judged by an international Selection Committee of experienced film and TV industry professionals. Judging is based on the writer’s track record and overall quality of the script, originality, writing style and concept marketability.
The Owl was created by the Athens Film Office to help develop film and TV projects with international appeal, and that make the most of the advantages Greece offers to the industry.
We’re looking for screenwriters from a diverse range of backgrounds and identities who develop audience-driven feature films and TV series, combining artistic vision and commercial potential, and which could potentially be produced and/or shot in Greece.
The variety and versatility of Greece makes it the ideal base for a wide range of productions. With locations from inner-city streets to the classic white sand beaches, a project doesn’t need to be set in Greece to shoot here.
