2deo serieak 2023
2deo SERIEAK is a program from 2deo, Tabakalera's audiovisual laboratory, for teaching, mentoring and supporting projects by creators of series (producers and screenwriters), by offers mentoring and individual advice and which is developed in collaboration with the Festival of Cinema of San Sebastian (SSIFF) and the Crossover festival.
The goal of the program is to promote series creation projects and influence the quality and viability of the projects through support, tutelage or accompaniment to their creators; scriptwriters, directors and/or producers.
The 2DEO SERIEAK program offers:
- Individual advice, adjusted for each project, by recognized industry professionals.
- Specific training in scriptwriting, new narratives, audiovisual production models and content platforms, among others.
- Final presentation of the project before possible producers, distributors or investors; primarily platforms and television channels.
- Economic aid of €5,000
The 2deo Serieak mentoring programme for creators of series wants to involve both emerging talents and professionals already working in the sector. Their series may be in any format or of any genre and must have international ambition and a particular interest in Basque- language production. The programme is open to series of any genre and duration, including fiction or documentary series, with a focus on digital platforms.
Three projects will be selected – at least one in Basque – and will receive mentoring. Over the coming months, the candidates will be supported by their mentors to develop a solid dossier and the pilot episode script to share with producers, investors and TV platforms and channels during the SSIFF.
To this end, two stays of two or three days are proposed at Tabakalera to work with the mentors. The first in April, during the Crossover Festival, the second in September, at the San Sebastian Film Festival (SSIFF). In this last part of the program, at the SSIFF, the teams will have the opportunity to share their projects with relevant agents in the sector in order to get opportunities to produce the series.
The call to receive projects will be open from January 16 to February 26, 2023.
