In the frame of the Feature Launch activities, the “Copyright and Scriptwriting: Getting it Right” will be held on the topic of the new copyright directive.
In March 2019, the new directive of the copyright law approved by the European Parliament and to be implemented in all countries in the European Union in the next 24 months, the legal framework, upon which European writers operate, will change. Will they be ready? Do supporting organizations and bodies, such as writers’ unions or guilds, exist and function in Eastern Europe? Can these writers make a career internationally and what is the role of a talent agent in this closely intertwined ecosystem?
MIDPOINT, as a leading training platform for fiction writers, will guide this pressing discussion with representatives of writers’ guilds, talent agencies, and local professionals, in collaboration with its partner KVIFF.
David Kavanagh (Federation of Screenwriters in Europe),

The discussion will be moderated by MIDPOINT Program Coordinator Katarina Tomkova.
