Thanks to an invitation from the Danish, Baltic and Nordic MEDIA-desks I became involved in developing and establishing this new workshop and pitch platform for scriptwriters; premiering the concept in November 2008. POWR offers Nordic and Baltic scriptwriters an opportunity to develop their feature film projects through an intensive 2-day pitch preparation where everyone takes an active part, reading and giving feedback on each other’s projects. POWR is part of the Baltic Event Co-production Market and we select 8 projects per workshop that are presented to producers, sales agents, funders and other attendees at the market.
The concept is continually developed in dialogue with managing director of the Baltic Event, Marge Liiske, member of the board Riina Sildos, and POWR-manager Katre Kajamäe. New additions from 2014 are the POWR Industry Meetings and in 2015, further developments are expected, such as adding a day to the workshop. I work closely with the team on the organisation, head the selection and the content development, while being one of the two main script consultants, having teamed up with established colleagues Gino Ventriglia, Miguel Machalski and presently, Antonio Piazza.
