FRAPA – The Porto Alegre Screenwriting Festival – is the biggest event focused in scriptwriting for television and film in Latin America. The 6th FRAPA will be held at Cinemateca Capitólio, from the 17th to 20th of July, 2018. Our aim is to discuss and strengthen the significance of screenplay writing in times of rise in TV and film production in Brazil, as well as promote a place for local professional screenwriters to get to know what’s new and in production all around Latin America.
Inspired by similar festivals in the United States of America and Europe, FRAPA has grown in size throughout the years, organizing debate sessions, competitions, workshops, screenings, master classes and business rounds. We intend to make FRAPA a reference for the thought of audiovisual writing in Latin America. By encouraging the exchange of experiences between screenwriters and other professionals in the audiovisual market, we create an opportunity for qualification and celebrate new partnerships.
FRAPA has received many renown professionals throughout its four editions. To name a few: James V. Hart (Dracula, Hook, Contact), Bráulio Mantovani (City of God and Elite Squad 1 and 2), Fernando Castets (Son of the Bride), Marcos Bernstein (Central Station), Pablo Stoll (25 Watts and Whisky), Luiz Bolognesi (Rio 2096: A Story of Love and Fury), Lisandro Alonso (Jauja), Matt Leipzig (agent) and many others.
FRAPA. Great stories to come.. .
