Anyone interested can apply by following the instructions in the section "Guarda che Storia!" of the Film Commission Torino Piemonte website and the Salone Internazionale del Libro website: the contestants will be able to present up to 3 literary works published in the three years 2020, 2021, 2022 of any genre (graphic novels included), set explicitly in Piedmont or that can realistically provide for the cinematographic/audiovisual shooting in Piedmont (in whole or in part).  
With "Guarda che storia!", the promoters reconfirm their willingness and interest in collaborating by proposing a path aimed at facilitating the dialogue between the publishing world and that of movies and television production: an interesting opportunity for the finalist projects that will allow the selected authors or publishers to benefit free of charge from a path of approach to the audiovisual industry and which will culminate in the "pitching session" during the next TFI Torino Film Industry.

The offer of a training session or a preparation workshop for the final pitch is also confirmed for the 2022 edition - held by an expert in the field - which will allow participants to learn techniques and methods to exhibit their project.
