Fondation Liban Cinema-FLC and the Beirut Creative Cluster, in collaboration with the French Institute in Lebanon and the European Union Delegation in Lebanon, organized a five day workshop for script rewriting for fiction feature films.

The workshop was directed by two scriptwriting experts.

Olivier Gorce, French screenwriter, Vice President of the Guild of Writers in France, regular speaker at the Fémis School, nominated for the 2012 César for Best Adapted script Omar killed me by Roschdy Zem.

Georges Hachem, Lebanese writer-director, head of audio-visual department at Antonine University, his film Lost Bullet is the winner of Best Screenplay at the Cairo Festival and Best Arab Film at the Festival of Dubai.

A total of 18 fiction feature film projects were submitted to a selection committee made of professionals who selected the five projects that participated in the workshop.

During the workshop, the two scriptwriters carried out individual sessions with five Lebanese scriptwriters and offered them advice and guidance in the process of re writing their scripts in order for them to make their scripts more complete and more appealing to international producers. A follow-up session will be organised six months later.
