Residency for writing scientific documentaries

From 2020 to 2022, the residency center De l’écriture à l’image and the Science & Television Association (AST) have joined forces to integrate the support of science documentary projects into the documentary writing residency (created in 2009), alongside other creative documentaries.

This residency aims to accompany authors from all horizons towards documentary writing for television and cinema. It took place in May (1 week) and September (2 weeks) in Saint-Quirin, a small jewel in the center of the Vosges, halfway between Nancy and Strasbourg.

This writing residency is part of the different actions of the AST / Pariscience Incubator, to facilitate the emergence of new talents and the birth and development of scientific documentary projects. Among the other actions of this incubator: the Scientific Ideas Fair, the calls for documentary projects, and Symbiosis – Make a film in 48h!

The residents are supported by two tutors:

  • Laurent Dené (Sancho&Co), for scientific documentaries
  • Vincent Gaullier (Look at Sciences), for creative documentaries
