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.
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.
“The Owl was the perfect hub to meet industry professionals, learn the craft and strategize a career path that can only lead to great things.”
“It was an absolute privilege to spend time and learn from mentors who
are leaders in their fields and participants who are so talented in a
city with some of the oldest stories in the world. A truly enriching
and unforgettable experience!”
“I just wanted to thank you both personally for The Owl workshop last
week - it was the most amazing experience, and so well run, and I
hope you both got to take some time off to relax afterwards. I've had
to help organize similar events before, and I know how much work goes
into everything, and it was very much appreciated.”
“It was such a valuable experience and I feel like I won't absorb it
all until I go back over my notes in the coming weeks. I'm looking
forward to it!”
“Great mentors, very interesting panels and lovely people.
The mix of producers, agents and writers was great and very inspiring.
It helped me to develop my script not only from an artistic point of
view, but also taking into account the needs of the industry.
Theworkshop also provided a good insight into the US system and the
Greek film industry.”
