Series Mania's  Founder and General Director, Laurence Herszberg, announced that the company is now accepting application submissions for its three writing residencies for developing screenwriters forming part of the Series Mania Forum, scheduled for 22-24 March of next year. “We are delighted to be accepting applications for the 2022 edition of our writing residencies. Our three programs, which take place concurrently in our creative workspace in Lille, operate independently but participate in common networking events and masterclasses with special guests," Herszberg said. "With the Writers Campus launched in 2017, the Drama Series Co-Writing Residency Israel – France in 2019, and the DEENTAL Series Workshop earlier this year, we are truly the launchpad for many of today’s burgeoning writers from around the world."

“Supporting Cultural diversity in film and audiovisual works is a top priority for the CNC. In a context weakened by two years of a pandemic, to support film & TV professionals around the world is more essential than ever. This is why we are really pleased to collaborate with Series Mania on two programs: The Drama Series Co-Writing Residency Israel – France and the DEENTAL Series Workshop within the framework of the DEENTAL program, with the financial cooperation of the European Union and the support of the organization of the African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS)," she continues. 

The “Call for Submissions” is now open until 20th December, for the Writers Campus, an immersive week-long workshop gathering 20 emerging TV drama writers; the Drama Series Co-Writing Residency Israel-France, where 10 Franco Israeli duos will participate in a series of workshops to pitch and develop their projects; and the DEENTAL Series Workshop, for talent coming from African, Caribbean, and Pacific countries. All three programs will take place in Lille, France from March 18-24, 2022. Applications can be made through a forum on the company's site. "We are proud to support emerging talent and foster transnational initiatives that will enhance the quality of television series,” commented Dominique Boutonnat, President of the CNC, Centre National du Cinéma et de l’Image animée.  

“We are very pleased with the ambitions that we set for ourselves through the Drama Series Co-Writing Residency Israel-France. We are grateful to the writers and partners for this rare opportunity to bond, to create, to bridge cultural and creative aspirations. We are excited to meet future challenges and a new group of inspiring writers in this third edition,”  Ziv Naveh, CEO and Artistic Director – GMFF, Gesher Multicultural Film Fund, Israel said.
