Pustnik Screenwriters Residency is a nine-day retreat in countryside Romania, where screenwriters can develop their projects in an environment dedicated to peace of mind and clarity of thought. We’ll enjoy local food and wine, get lost in the woods, and knuckle down on our scripts. We want to thank all those who applied for the 2019 edition for the overwhelming response; the call is now closed. Participants will be announced in June.
