Save the date: HOW TO WRITE EFFECTIVE LOGLINES with Simona Nobile

After the succesful past Hang-Out with Simona Nobile, a dedicated online training to help filmmakers write more effective loglines is offered now. Save the date, December 14 and 15.

The workshop will be developed in two afternoon sessions with 10 participants ONLY on a first come, first served basis.

The workshop is intended for writers, directors, producers and filmmakers in general who struggle at writing loglines.

Logline and synopsis are key elements of a project presentation and crucial to outline better pitches. No matter if you’re writing a feature, a documentary or a TV series.

Are you spending too much time to understand what to write and not to write?

You’re not alone and you’re in good company.


Come and join us in this 4-hour workshop. We will focus on writing an effective logline for your project.

Each participant should bring at least 1 project preferably at an early stage (fiction, documentary, TV series, videogame, virtual reality are welcome). Loglines and one page synopsis are required to work.


-EWA members.

-one project minimum per participant. The stage of development is not important (it can be just an idea or going into production), documentary film projects, shorts, or book adaptations are welcome.

-good energy and willing to practise some team work

-Zoom access

The workshop is designed for 10 participants only, on a first come first served basis.

Participants will pay €20 and EWA network will sponsor the rest of the fee.
