Myanmar Script Fund is a program for emerging local filmmakers and producers developing their first or second full-length feature film, fiction only. MSF is intended to help connect promising Burmese filmmakers with international audiences.
Due to the sanitary situation, the 5th edition of MSF will take place exclusively online from December 1 to 9, 2020 (preparation sessions for candidates from Nov. 24).
The 2020 program has two components:
MSF Original is reserved for new MSF projects and applicants. 6 projects are selected and benefit from tailored coaching sessions. They are part of a pitching competition in front of an international jury. More information here.
MSF Advanced is dedicated to MSF alumni with the presentation of a previously selected project. 6 projects are selected among the most mature. This part of MSF offers one-to-one coaching sessions with tutors before meetings with worldwide film industry decision-makers (festivals, film funds, markets…). More information here.
All sessions will take place online via Zoom.
Since its inception, the Myanmar Script Fund program has been faithfully supported by the Union Ministry of Information of Myanmar, French Embassy, Institut français, Swiss Embassy, Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, European Union Delegation in Myanmar, CNC (French National Film Center), Arte, US Embassy, Open Doors (Locarno Festival) and Forever Group.
