The Algarve Indie Scriptwriters Workshop

Nurturing the future of the Film Industry in the region

“About the Algarve.
Produced in the Algarve.
Watched around the world.
Made proudly in Portugal.”


The first scriptwriters workshop will take place at Spy Manor in December 2020. 

Once the workshop is completed, a further 6 to 9 months writing collaboration will continue with the pre-selected writers. 

The result will culminate in a compelling pitch, a fully scripted episode, series story arcs and outline of future episodes.

Our Mission: To support and nurture the creation of authentic Algarve rooted content that appeals to the international audience. The content will be pitched further to the international streaming services, broadcasters and networks to develop an Algarve based television series.

Our initiative aims to create regional content to be produced and shot in The Algarve , Portugal.

Being at the core of the Algarve Film Collective network, we aspire to engage our local community’s talents and skills, fostering an opportunity for us all to flourish together.

A different kind of scriptwriting workshop in the Algarve

The Portugal Film Commission expressed interest and support of the initiative, acknowledging the importance of the workshop and the strong impact to the Algarve region.

This unique program gives 10 screenwriters a wonderful opportunity to excel in a script-writing collaborative experience. This is a truly unique approach in developing the overall premise and the pilot episode, (subsequently a full season) of an original Algarve based television series. 


We thank our partners for their support on this initiative
