Call for CIRCLE Fiction Orbit is open

After last year’s success, CIRCLE is launching the second edition of its tailor-made program in the fiction film industry Fiction Orbit!

We are looking for 10 women and non-binary (second or third-time) directors and producers with strong feature-film projects in development to apply for this initiative.

Fiction Orbit is an intensive one-week workshop which aims to support directors and producers who are developing their second or third fiction feature film.

During the workshop, a carefully selected group of filmmakers will work with leading experts to advance their projects and identify their needs based on solidarity, knowledge exchange and a hands-on mentality.

Selected participants will receive feedback on their script, legal aspects and production options, including the best strategic choices and psychological support during their creative process.

Bianca Oana (award winning producer and screenwriter) is the Head of Programme for CIRCLE Fiction Orbit. The workshop will take place at the end of November 2024 in Montenegro.
