Film project „The Beanie“ selected for scriptwriting workshop Cinekid Script Lab.

Cinekid Script LAB is a six-month script-training program for writers with a children’s film project. LAB participants work with internationally acclaimed advisors who push them to their creative limits. The coaching offered to each filmmaker is tailor-made and addresses the needs of both the writer and the story across the LAB’s two-phased trajectory.

The LAB starts during Cinekid for Professionals in Amsterdam in October and runs until the Berlinale in Berlin in February 2019.

Among the twelve projects originated from countries across Europe is also Slovenian project The Beanie by writer Saša Eržen. The film tells the story about a boy who has nothing and a girl who seems to have everything, and their Christmas adventure when all of their Christmas wishes come true, but not quite the way they’ve each expected.

The film is produced by Ida Weiss and will be directed by Slobodan Maksimović (Nika). Shooting is planned in winter 2019.

In 2017 project participated scriptwriting workshop Scenarnica organized by The Directors Guild Of Slovenia.

Development of the project is supported by the Slovenian Film Centre.
