Objective of the Project

The MIDPOINT project / Iceland - Midnight Sun Script Development Workshop was an adequate response to the need in Iceland for partnerships that develop training opportunities in film education, as well as create opportunities for emerging Icelandic film talent abroad. The project partnerships consisted of the Film and TV School (FAMU) from the Czech Republic and the Icelandic Film School from Iceland. The main aim was to organize a joint workshop on script development and master’s classes, to strengthen human capital and know-how there. Through the joint workshop for Czech and Icelandic students, the project supported the mobility of film students, teachers and professionals between Iceland and the Czech Republic. The final result of the project is a functional Czech-Icelandic network within the film industry and a new bilateral cooperation agreement which established fruitful cooperation and which will be beneficial for students from both schools in the future.
