Northern Script is seeking for scriptwriters from previous years !!


Northern Script 2023 is seeking young storytellers & scriptwriters (age 18-29 years of age) from the previous years. If you have applied for the Northern Script Competition over the past years and you have a story to be told – seek into our first ever NORTHERN SCRIPT 2023 ALUMNI PROGRAM . The program makes it possible to reach out to other young scriptwriters across the Nordic countries and get online and onsite mentoring with your own script idea!!


You only need to send us your 10 page long short film script idea by 2 August Northern Script Alumni Submission 2023 ( and follow the given guidelines. Each Northern Script alumni who send us their 1st draft by 2 August 2023 gets an opportunity to join FOUR (4) FREE ONLINE NORTHERN SCRIPT SCRIPTWRITING WORKSHOPS in each of the five Nordic countries. Expect intensive and fulfilling work on your own script supported by our Northern Script experts!


After the online workshops, a Nordic expert jury will make a shortlist of scripts for two purposes. Firstly, for the selection of film production by OSAO in Oulu and secondly, for the selection of Northern Script Camp in 2023 in Oulu. The selection is based on your own work effort during the workshops and the quality of the final script.

At OSAO Film Department, the film students together with their teacher will choose 3 scripts from the shortlist. These scripts will go into production (storyboard, shoot, edit). The three chosen scripts and their scriptwriters have a chance to collaborate and work online together with the OSAO film students from mid-September until mid-November and have their say on the production. The emphasis will be on the voice of the Nordic youth and the collaboration with the other scriptwriters and the movie production team. 

At Oulu Northern Script Camp you will be able to take part in the intensive Northern Script writers room to be inspired by experts, by peers and by the Nordic film community. A special prize will be offered for one of the participants, more about it later! The Northern Script Camp will be held in mid-November in Oulu in Northern Finland. Exact dates will be confirmed later! One of our Oulu workshop leaders will be the one and only, the amazing Faroese Film director, Andrias Høgenni.

Andrias Høgenni is a Faroese film director who moved to Denmark in 2009. He graduated from Super16 in 2018, and his thesis-film “Ikki illa meint” won the Canal+ Award for best short film at Semaine de la Critique in the Cannes 2019 festival. It also won the Danish Academy Award (Robert) for best short film the same year. He has since directed two Tv-series for Danmarks Radio. The latest one being “Ingen vej tilbage”, which premiered on DRTV in 2022.
