The Global Greek Film Initiative team in association with The Hellenic Initiative is proud to have supported the second edition of the OWL Screenwriting Workshop, which took place earlier this month in Athens against the iconic background of the Parthenon! The workshop hosted professional screenwriters whose feature films or TV pilots can be adapted to filming in Athens and Greece. Organized by Athens Film Officer Stathis Kalogeropoulos and Head of Development Christina Mitropoulou, the OWL aims to promote Athens as a film-friendly city by offering participants the opportunity to complete their scripts and connect with film and television producers from around the world. Writers had the opportunity to explore their stories and characters alongside top industry mentors and influential dealmakers from major studios, platforms, production companies, and agencies. Participants in this year’s workshop came from Canada, Cyprus, Germany, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Poland and the United States.
