The event

SERENA Productions presents, in collaboration with La Napoule Art Foundation the international writing residency CASA CINE.

Its first edition will take place in May 2023 and follows CINE CERCA (2020-2022), a film writing residency between France and Portugal. In keeping with the tradition of the Château de la Napoule, we wanted to move towards a more international event, welcoming a greater number of residents and opening up to a new field: film music.

Conceived to offer a unique experience in space and time, CASA CINE intends to provide a place for sharing, where film professionals can dedicate themselves entirely to creation.

Aimed at writer-directors and screenwriters as well as film score composers, this international film writing residency is open to film professionals of all ages and nationalities. It runs from the 9th to the 30th of May, 2023 at the Château de La Napoule and will be held annually during the Festival de Cannes. 

Applications open on February 8th and all informations are available on the CASA CINE website. Interested artists simply need to fill in the online form, complete an application dossier in accordance with the instructions on the public notice and send it to contact@casacine.org before March 8th.

First and second feature films of all genres will be considered; including fiction, documentary and animation. Four authors and two composers will be chosen to attend the residency, selected by a jury composed of film and audiovisual professionals.
