NICE THINGS THEY SAID
" Write Retreat is freedom - nobody makes you do anything certain - only you decide. So, you can either write a draft, or several lines, but all of these ways will definitely make you feel your
project much deeper. The organizing team and the participants managed to create a very trustful and comfortable environment, where everybody could feel free, share their stories, thoughts, fears and mistakes, express their opinion and receive formidable feedback and advice - MAKSYM NAKONECHNYI
I would have died if there wasn’t the write retreat" - DAISUKE MIYAZAKI
I would strongly recommend everyone to go to the Write Retreat, to be inspired and to get going on a dream project. Ideally in between drafts. You’ll have the rare occasion to spend time only on being and inspired and writing " - KRISTIAN SEJRBO LIDEGAARD
I love silence, and silence is what you get. I will always remember the bells from the sheep in the pasture while writing outside the house. I would't think that the sound of bells could be so comforting. The whole place is comforting; the view on the mountains, the food, the meetings, the people - JENIFER MALMQVIST
The perfect place where you can explore, reflect, get influenced and... write - TINNA HRAFNSDÓTTIR
They helped me address my writers block (which we identified to be due to a lack of courage and disillusionment on my part), and helped me discover the soul of my story. The place was beautiful and conducive to thinking and writing. People experience many deaths and rebirths in a lifetime, but The Write Retreat is the one rebirth that I would surely remember and treasure forever - SIEGE LEDESMA
The Write Retreat is the right retreat for connecting with goats, sheep, fellow filmmakers, mentors and the sublime essence of your script. Highly recommend and superbly hosted in the tender hands of Marietta and Anthea - ILLUM JACOBI
"The write retreat was a bubble of creativity in my life. At Fangar, time stops and you can fully immerse yourself in your project. The best: the variety of international mentors.
The 2018 Write Retreat in Mallorca was extremely productive and inspiring both to the scriptwriting process of my project, and to the devolvement of the pre-production and production phases.
A magnificent location to write with supporting and meticulous mentorship, an experience that allows thinking, doubting, changing and developing within a limited amount of time.
For me it was THE place to come with a good treatment and a pile of ideas and materialize those into a living script - ASSAF GRUBER
The Write was a great experience!
With the assistance of professionals and educators, I was given a kickstart of confidence to begin a new script. All the writer/directors really connected during the retreat because we all had one passion in common - filmmaking - AVIVA NEUMAN
I loved being at the Write Retreat with Marietta, Anthea and all the writers. It was fun and exciting to be such a diverse group of people and it was clear that Marietta and Anthea had taken the time and energy to put together an amazing group of people. It was great to get feedback from the script consultants, all of them with different perspectives and experiences from the industry. The place itself was worth the trip, what a luxury to be at a mansion and have time to focus on your script while being fed delicious local food. I wanna go again!

During our time at the Write Retreat, we've experienced an unparalleled working environment that truly stood out. One of the most striking aspects was the serene atmosphere that pervaded our workspace, allowing for deep focus and undisturbed creativity. Distractions were a non-issue there, which was a rare find in today’s bustling world.
To anyone considering joining this vibrant and enriching environment, We say this: you’re not just writing here; you’re becoming part of a community that values focus and meaningful mentorship. We are grateful for our experiences here.
I must highlight the exceptional work of the organizers, Marieta and Anthea. Their expertise and nurturing approach have not only fostered our professional growth but also instilled a sense of confidence and capability in our work. They are more than just instructors; they are guides who genuinely invest in your journey. Their meticulous selection of mentors is particularly noteworthy. We felt that these mentors were chosen specifically for our projects, ensuring a highly personalized and effective mentoring experience.

The Write Retreat is the perfect place to flesh out your treatment or get the next draft of your script written. Not only do you get to do that in stunning surroundings but in wonderful company and great food. The mentors and speakers are some of the best in the business and are extremely gracious with their time and generous with their advice. I went away with having learned a lot, made new friends and crucially something under my belt that I can work with; knowing that I wouldn’t have been able to find the time or headspace to do so amongst my every-day surroundings. Maria and Anthea and their team put together such a useful and memorable retreat.
The Write Retreat was such a blessing. It offered my cowriter and I time to discuss our project in depth, while getting daily feedback from different excellent mentors. They all came from various backgrounds, which was so fruitful as they would all have a different perspective and approach to our script. We received great, professional insight and had the right space and time for new ideas to emerge and be deepened. Plus, the setting was absolutely gorgeous, and we were treated with such care and attention to detail that the whole week felt like an absolute treat

The Write Retreat was an amazing cocoon of creativity with mentors and fellows all around the world supporting the creative journey I needed. I can’t recommend enough this haven, that helped me let go of everyday distractions. There is a sense of solitude that allows you to percolate your story ideas, a community that pushes you to think from all the angles and how to make YOUR story the best it can be. Anthea and Marietta have created something truly unique and special and it was an honor to be a part of it!”

The Write Retreat was one of my most favourite and memorable experiences of last year and I am so grateful to have been a part of it!
Plus my project, Crossing Worlds, grew and transformed exponentially during and after my time there. I was given such valuable insight through one on one meetings with mentors and I am so grateful for the family of filmmakers I found there.
In addition, Mallorca's beauty contributed to ushering in a breath of fresh air to myself, my film and my creative process. I highly recommend it! Thank you The Write Retreat!
