22 June-4 July 6, 2020, Nisyros, Greece
August/September 2020, online
11-18 October 2020, online
December 2020, online

The intensive 1st session consists of presentations, group workshops, Q’&’A sessions, case studies & individual tutoring. Participants are divided in small groups of 5-6 projects (7-8 participants), each supervised by a trainer in script development.

The second, online session follows, taking place in four private internet forums hosted on MFI’s website. Each workshop group is placed in a private forum, accessible only with a special password assigned to the group’s members and their trainer. Participants are required to have progressed with their projects to the stage of an extensive re-write of their draft, ideally to produce a complete new draft. They “upload” their material to their group’s forum for trainers and fellow participants to read. Then, as in a residential session, group discussion on the projects begins.

The third session is again a residential one, focusing on the final re-writing process. Participants are required to deliver a fully revised script draft in time for all trainers and fellow group members to read. The session is designed as a workshop for a deep review and critique of the revised drafts.

The fourth workshop session is yet again an online one. Participants are expected to provide their final drafts so that their script development tutors can comment and provide feedback.
