The second writers’ lab for Nordic screenwriters and commissioners will focus on films and closed-ended mini-series. Deadline to apply is May 3rd, 2023 at 12.00 CET.


Nordisk Film & TV Fond is pleased to announce that its latest industry-training initiative NORDIC SCRIPT carries on for a second year with partners Oslo Seriedagene, the Göteborg Film Festival and the City of Helsinki.

Current mentors and writing experts Adam August (Follow the Money 3, Cry Wolf), Maria Clauss (All That is Left, Beartown 2) and Margrete Soug Kåset (Mammon 2, Himmelblå) have signed up for NORDIC SCRIPT 2023-2024.

This year’s training programme will focus on writing for feature films and close-ended mini-series.

Liselott Forsman, CEO of Nordisk Film & TV Fond and initiator of NORDIC SCRIPT said: “After last year’s much appreciated, inaugural Nordic Script dedicated to series writing, we have widened the training scope to incorporate the art of writing for film, as Nordic storytellers navigate smoothly between the different writing formats. The 2023-2024 lab will focus on films and close-ended mini-series. With this new emphasis, we are happy to continue working with the same partners Oslo Seriedagene, the Göteborg Film Festival and City of Helsinki, and with our distinguished mentors Adam August from Denmark, Maria Clauss from Sweden and Margrete Soug Kåset from Norway.”
