This department focuses all its strength in European Short Pitch, an initiative based on the support and development of young European scriptwriters through an annual scriptwriting workshop and a co-production Forum.

EUROPEAN SHORT PITCH is an initiative aimed to promote the European co production of short films, that combines a scriptwriting workshop in the form of a residency, an online session and a Co Production Forum bringing together scriptwriters and industry professionals from all over Europe. NISI MASA called for projects from writers, directors and producers (aged between 18-35 years old) with international short film projects in development. The Department contributes to the promotion of the workshops’ products and already existent works of young Screenwriting students.
