It can be tough out there sometime, but our magical Rocaberti Writers’ Retreats, where deals get made and the networking lasts for a lifetime, offer a more supportive and collaborative way to get your novel or screenplay onto the big screen!
Our incredibly popular retreats are residential, all-inclusive events held in medieval 14th century castles in Spain and France. We keep the numbers small (a maximum of 16 writers per retreat) to ensure exclusive, personalized attention for your project.
Our top Hollywood and film industry mentors (4 at each retreat, plus special guests), include Oscar-winning writers, film producers, Hollywood agents, and other industry executives who have worked with Paramount, Disney, NBC, The Gersh Agency, Marvel Studios and 20th Century Fox, to name but a few.
Attending a Rocaberti Retreat immediately makes you part of a supportive network that’s ongoing.
As acclaimed children’s author Rebecca Colby, who attended last October’s retreat says:
“There are many other screenwriting events out there, but the beauty of your retreats is the small numbers and the opportunity to make true connections with other writers and film industry professionals.
I can go to all the film festivals and screenwriting conferences I like and swap business cards with hundreds of people (as I’ve done before!), but nothing beats the opportunity to get to know people for who they are and make a real connection with them.”
And, as Samuel Daram, winner of a recent Rocaberti scholarship puts it:
“You’ve created an important network that should last a lifetime … the Rocaberti Retreat isn’t just for five days. It is for one’s entire life.”
Attending a Rocaberti Retreat also offers a real chance of landing a deal for your project. We’ve had people attend and have their script or book optioned even before the end of the retreat!
The impossible does happen, and it happens at Rocaberti!
