Script Pool Tallinn welcomes TV projects and teams up with MIDPOINT



Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event will team up with the Czech MIDPOINT TVLaunch programme to develop and support new TV drama projects and talents.

MIDPOINT was conceived at renowned FAMU Prague in 2010 with the aim of strengthening the creative collaboration between writers, directors and producers in the development process in Central and Eastern Europe and will add value to the Script Pool Tallinn initiative, especially for working with series. MIDPOINT has also a submission deadline approaching for a year-long development module, see more HERE!

Entering its second year, Script Pool Tallinn is a script competition launched at Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event in 2017, awarding a prize of 5000 Euros to the best feature or TV series script. The award is provided by Global Screen GmbH.

The public pitch, open to all the attending industry professionals, takes place on the 29th of November during Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event.

Deadline for submission is the 3rd of September.


The Baltic Film, Media, Arts and Communication School in collaboration with the Creative Industries promotion platform Creative Gate present the scriptwriting master class of Linda Aronson. Masters of the three-act structure ruled the world of scriptwriting in the 1990s and early 2000s, but the last decade has seen a rising demand for new types of theories and practice. Linda is a scriptwriter, editor and film theorist, dedicated to studying the new age of scriptwriting, where the studios, distributors, televisions, and especially the audience, expect to see stories with a much more complicated structures. In her teachings, she distinguishes between six non-linear/parallel narrative forms of script: Flashback, Tandem, Sequential, Multiple Protagonist, Double Journey and Fractured Tandem. 

The Tallinn master class is aimed at scriptwriters, writers, game developers, film directors, producers, editors, playwrights and stage directors, critics and the more advanced film and theatre students.

Time: October 12-13 2018, 10 AM – 5 PM 
Place: Nova building in BFM, Narva mnt 27, Tallinn

About Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival

Started in 1997, the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival has grown into one of the biggest film festivals in Northern Europe and busiest regional industry platforms, hosting more than 1000 guests and industry delegates and over 160 journalists. The festival screens around 250 features and more than 300 shorts and animations and sees an attendance of 80 000 people annually. In 2017 the festival was covered in 71 languages with a potential global media audience of over 1.1 billion people.

As of 2014 the festival holds the FIAPF accreditation for holding an international competition programme which puts the festival into the so- called A-category of film festivals, alongside other 14 festivals in the world (including Cannes, Berlinale, Venice, Karlovy Vary, San Sebastian, Shanghai, Tokyo etc).
