WoS Talent Lab
In tandem with the festival, this year WoS is launching a support programme for the screenwriting, production and directing of films whose subject is all facets of war. WoS thereby aims to encourage the development of a new generation of screenwriters, directors and producers drawn to a theme that now more than ever, pervades our societies.
To present war from as many angles as possible, and to better understand its causes, consequences and human motives is the objective of the WoS Talent Lab.
Participants will be free to explore all cinematographic genres (science-fiction, espionage, melodrama, comedy etc.). The fictional plot should take place in a contemporary or future timeframe, either during, before or after a war, as soon as the conflict conditions the behaviour of the characters.
Session 1 : Scenarios development by the participants, supervised by the director Aline Fischer

Session 2 : Scenario finalization and presentation by their author-producer duos, surpervised by Harold Manning, script doctor
