20 young screenwriters from Switzerland, Austria and Germany will come to Saas-Fee to attend the first SCRIPT CAMP of the SFFF. Together with our high-profile lecturers they will analyze and discuss selected feature films regarding script development and dramaturgy. As cooperation partners Zürcher Hochschule der Künste, Wiener Filmakademie and Filmuniversität Potsdam-Babelsberg.
The SCRIPT CAMP is a unique feature of SFFF. Nowhere else in Switzerland, or in Europe for that matter, has a film festival shone its spotlight on screenwriting in quite the same way. In addition to a feature film competition, the Saas-Fee Film Festival celebrates the art of screenwriting as the core of the filmmaking process. The SFFF Script Camp is also unique as an international collaboration and exchange platform, which sees Switzerland, Austria and Germany joining forces for an advanced screenplay training program.
