Who can apply?

The Owl is open to professional film and TV writers of all nationalities who have started building their screenwriting career, and want to expand their work to reach a global audience.

The Owl will confirm credits via IMDb.

The Owl is open to writers both with and without representation.

Applicants must have either:

at least 1 credit on a feature film released theatrically or on a global streaming platform

at least 2 episodes of a TV series broadcast on a terrestrial channel or a global streaming platform

What can I submit?

Each applicant may submit 1 TV drama pilot or 1 Feature Film script. Your script can be an original idea or be based on an underlying property. It must have the potential to be adapted to be produced and/or shot in Greece. It could be set in Greece, or aim to shoot Greece for another location.

For clarity, we are not expecting writers to submit a tailor made script for the purpose of the application but to submit a script that is already written and which could be adapted to be shot in Greece. To get the most out of the Owl, your script should be at the first draft stage, though we will consider more developed projects.

You must either:

hold the copyright to the material

have permission from the copyright holder to submit and workshop the material

if based on third party IP, have available proof of chain of title
