EWA Network’s Female Voices Award at Torino Film Lab Meeting Event

Female Voices EWA Award at Torino Film Meeeting event


In our endeavour to support female creatives, EWA Network continues its partnership with Torino Film Lab, to present an award in one of the oldest training initiatives that they have been running, the ScriptLab, a screenwriting programme open to writer/directors developing a script for a feature film.

Historically, very few women have been acknowledged for their writing efforts. The lack of gender parity in the industry is no secret, hence we aim to seek out female talent and support their projects to bring more diversity and character richness.

In the first edition, BLEACH was the winner, a project written by Dorunthina Basha and directed by Kaltrina Krasniqi


Alexia Muiños Ruiz will present the award on Saturday 25 of November during the Torino Film Meeting event. Check the brochure to find out more about the eligible projects.
