Third edition of School of The Arts TV Writing Program takes place at Rio Center

January 31, 2016

Another chapter of the ever frutiful partnership between Columbia University School of The Arts, Columbia Global Centers | Rio de Janeiro and RioFilme was written this past January 2016.

As part of an ongoing effort to build capacity within Rio de Janeiro's visual arts market, the partnership brought together the third edition of the TV Writing Intensive in Rio de Janeiro. The program is inspired and taught by the same professor as the TV Writing programs that take place at the School of The Arts, in New York.

Following on the success of two five-week intensive Television Writing courses held in 2014, the TV Writing Intensive in Rio trained 30 beginning and professional writers in the art and craft of writing for television.

The workshops were presented by Professor Joe Cacaci, who also taught a Master Class at the Museu de Arte do Rio (MAR), open to the public.

The Columbia Global Centers | Rio de Janeiro is also proud to announce that another edition of the TV Writing workshops will happen later in 2016 and more information will be posted on our website soon.
