The International Short Film Festival of Cyprus (ISFFC) will be hosting for the first time this year TSFM Word-Frame, an intensive workshop for short film directors organised by Turin’s Talents and Short Film Market (TSFM). The workshop will take place from 10 to 14 October 2022 at Rialto Theatre.
TSFM Word-Frame will provide guidance to eight participants in the making of a short fiction or hybrid film, providing them with the basic knowledge and working tools useful for writing a script and realising a short film. Moreover, the workshop aims at increasing the participants’ knowledge about the development of stories for short films, and the basics of production and distribution in the festival circuit.
