”The enemy of art is the absence of limitations”
In partnership with the development program LIM I Less is more, NFI offers a five-day workshop that focuses on the development before entering the writing process.
This workshop aims to get a deeper understanding of how the brain works during its creative phases when ideas emerge and how ideas implement themselves to gain consistency.
The workshop helps the participants to get into research mode, explore and generate new ideas. It inspires you to play with the possibilities that accompany every idea. They teach you how to use constraints to push creativity further. The participants are given tools and methods to release their creative energy, interact playfully with their intellectual material, and generate various story ideas. The participants are supported while testing their story plot to determine if they are worth being developed in a feature-length film.
Two international script consultants from LIM/Le Groupe Ouest will create a safe environment and invite the participants to tackle their ideas and strengthen them through theory and practical exercises.
The workshop is not designed to work mainly on projects the participants are currently occupied with. Pre-writing is really the work on «no idea» or the beginning of it, but not on a very specific advanced project. Nevertheless, the experience and knowledge that the participants will gain will also positively influence the work on their current projects.
LIM’s program and methodology has been developed mainly for fiction projects. Authors from documentaries are welcome if they want to work also on fiction projects.
To apply for the workshop
e-mail CV, motivation letter and max one-page idea outline (optional) of a current project to Rune Tellefsen email@example.com in English.
Deadline: Monday September 20th.
This pre-writing workshop will function as the local Norwegian event before the call for LIM 2022, please see below.
Please note that the working language of the workshop will be English.
Selected regional participants (outside of Oslo-area) may be eligible to apply for travel support. More information after selection.
This will be the third time we’ve had the Prewriting workshop in Norway, please see a short statement by one of the earlier participants, Kaveh Tehrani, here.

StoryTANK, the European Think Tank focusing on storytelling
We brought together experienced writers of screenplays and fiction, and allowed them a prospective and pragmatic work process with researchers in adjacent fields, like cognitive or social sciences, physiology, mathematics, neuroscience… It’s about cogitating together, in a non-dogmatic, European and humanist perspective, about the function – both physiological and social – of the story using images and sound, keeping in mind the new ways of a generation transformed by the digital revolution.

TBA – call for LIM 2022
NFI is a partner of the LIM I Less is more annual program and will publish the call for their next edition in autumn. For more info on the annual program, please watch this short clip or read more here.
