Looking back at 2018: Speakers from 12 countries shared visions and working methods with 500 delegates. The theme “spirituality” was strongly present, from Tatjana Samopjan’s lecture on writing beyond entertainment to the wise thoughts of creators like Danish Adam Price, Israeli Keren Margalit, British Tony Grisoni. Finnish producer Ronja Salmi built bridges between social media and series and game director Kalle Kaivola between games and series writing. Swedish Lars Lundström, Danish Jeppe Gjervig Gram, Italian Barbara Petronio and Finnish Kirsi Porkka shared views on writing high end suspense. “Authenticity” was a keyword in the session on “Skam” remakes. Italian top professionals opened up on combining domestic stories with Hollywood stardom.
