Apulia Film Commission, aims at promoting initiatives for TV and film production and audiovisual training.
We have launched Apulia Audiovisual Workshop – Pugliexperience 2011 selection call, an international workshop in scriptwriting addressed to 16 scriptwriters from Euro-Mediterranean area.

PugliaExperience 2011 is the itinerant three weeks workshop in screenwriting, whose aim is to attract professionals in audiovisual narration and to inspire scripts set in Puglia.
