Script Junction brings together a group of British and Nigerian screenwriters to explore, develop and create screenplays through a range of high quality workshops, mentoring and development programmes delivered by top industry professionals.
It explores film trends, cinematic identity and the current marketplace while also letting each writer bring out the best in their own script. Script Junction has been designed by British Council in collaboration with the UK’s National Film & TV School (NFTS), the Nigerian Film Institute (NFI), the Edinburgh International Film Festival (EIFF) and the Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF).
The programme runs from June to November 2015. The selected writers have attended a five-day workshop in June 2015 during the Edinburgh International Film Festival and will take part in a second five-day workshop at AFRIFF in Lagos, Nigeria in November 2015, before pitching their projects to an industry panel at AFRIFF.
