SCREENWRITERS’ WORKSHOP PALUNKO 8
last film from Palunko’s workshop won the main award
at last year’s Checkers Selection (‘Cold Front’ by Uroš Živanović).
12 new authors will have a
chance to see the films based on their scripts shown at Zagreb
Film Festival 2011. Maybe one of them also gets lucky
and wins the first prize! This year, Checkers Selection will
present ‘Snapshots’ (directed by Aldo Tardozzi and
written by the last year’s winner of Palunko workshop, Dušan Vorkapić).
Palunko is a project of Croatian Film
Clubs’ Association, launched in 2003. It includes screenwriters’
competitions, discussions and workshops. More
than 80 screenwriters-beginners have attended
Palunko’s workshops so far. This year, the eighth
in a row, the team of mentors will include Dalibor Matanić, Zvonimir
Jurić and Tomislav Zajec. The attendants, who
will be selected after a public competition, will
have five days to develop their ideas for short feature films.
The script that the mentors select as the best will be
realized in production of Croatian Film Clubs’ Association and
