MIDPOINT Intensive Iceland is a special workshop for Icelandic filmmakers with their feature films in early stages of development. The workshop is intended for writers, directors and producers who are working on their 1st or 2nd features.
During an intensive 2-day workshop, 4 selected teams will develop their scripts and projects, both relying on group feedback and on one-to-one consulting with the tutor.
The workshop will be run by Gyula Gazdag. Apart from being an acclaimed Hungarian filmmaker in his own right, Gazdag is the Artistic Director of Sundance Directors Lab since 1997, and advisor at Script Station of the Berlinale Talents since 2006. Variety in 2010 named named him one of the ten best film teachers in the US.
The workshop is organized thanks to the support of the Icelandic Film Centre – as well as that of the Stockfish Film Festival and Bio Paradis, Reykjavík's art-house cinema – and their commitment to securing script and project development at international level for their local film industry.
