Writers/Directors – Development angels


Coming soon, work in progress…

LIM* proposes an annual programme for “Development angels”, film professionals — creative producers, story-editors, development executives, commissioning editors… — wanting to strengthen their ability to follow the development of feature film projects.

LIM is welcoming applicants from (and/or living in) the European Union, Eurimages Countries and non-EU countries participating in the Creative Europe Programme, as well as the United Kingdom*.

We have chosen the term “Development angels” as an alternative to the more restricted notion of “Story editors” because we strongly believe that the art of development should be an across-the-board collaboration between script professionals, producers, sales agents, film-fund managers and everyone involved in the process. We believe everyone will benefit from evolving common tools and a common language together with writers and directors.


The working language of all LIM workshops, meetings and events is English; thus, a good knowledge of English is essential in order to participate.
