The 29th eQuinoxe screenwriting workshop will run June 3-9 in Evian, France. After years of a nomadic existence, this marks the beginning of a partnership with the town of Evian. eQuinoxe president Noelle Deschamps says the aim is that the workshop will now be based in Evian for the foreseeable future.

Danielle Thompson will preside over this edition of the workshops with participation from Laurent Tirard, Mary Sweeney, Robert Wade, Martin Sherman and Susan B. Landau. In total, eight scripts have been chosen from the 250 submitted. Writers will work with industry professionals to hone their projects over the five-day session which will terminate in a 'pitch day.' Following the event, the association will continue to work with the screenwriters in an effort to find directors, producers and distributors.
