Moonstone East

In 2005 along with welcoming Mitteldeutsche Medienforderung (MDM) as a funder of Moonstone International Screen Labs, Moonstone also opened Moonstone East - our first office outside of Edinburgh. Far from being a separate entity from Moonstone, this office is an extension of our existing office. Moonstone East, based in Leipzig, is an information point for potential participants, advisors and producers from eastern Europe and Germany.

Leipzig is the perfect focal point for communication between East and West Europe, so by locating our second office here we can enhance the flow of information to eastern Europe and Germany.

Since its establishment in 1997 Moonstone has adopted an increasingly pan- European approach to its training programme. Moonstone is keenly interested in European identities, and the nurturing of distinct and original European voices. Filmmakers from each European region bring a fresh way of thinking, of interpreting the world and of telling stories - this is something that Moonstone is eager to embrace and nurture. The key reason why the Moonstone model is such an effective, unique development and training opportunity is the ability of the programme to individually nurture scripts and talent. We would encourage applicants from across Europe to take advantage of this experience.

Over the past eight years Moonstone has ran a number of Screenwriters’ Labs outside of Northern Europe in Italy, Slovenia and central Germany. In 2007 Moonstone ran its first Filmmakers’ Lab in Germany.
