Nostos was born out of a wish to create a space for screenwriters from all over the world to focus on their work, become part of a writing community, and get valuable feedback from experts in the industry.


Screenwriting Retreats

This two-week screenwriting retreat, hosted in Tuscan countryside, is designed to take the participants through the process of creating and perfecting their script for a feature film or TV pilot.

Online mentorship

In these online sessions, we will match you with the script doctor best suited for your project and create a one-to-one mentorship schedule designed to take your project to the next level.

Valuable feedback for every writer

Every writer who applies to our retreat receives a 500-word review with constructive feedback on their work from our of our seasoned script reviewers.

"I feel inspired, confident, and I'm really happy with the work I got done on the retreat. I made some new life-long friends. I ate incredible food every day. And I got to take the most gorgeous runs across the Tuscan countryside. Honestly, I am beside myself with gratitude."


How to apply

Application and selection process

We handle all applications via FilmFreeway, where you can apply to attend one of our upcoming retreats, apply to work with an online mentor, or simply get your screenplay or treatment reviewed.

Our team of expert script reviewers then judge each submission according to our internal points system. Each project is judged on its concept, presentation, structure, plot, pacing, dialogue, characters, and theme. Treatments, which must be detailed and at least 15 pages long, are judged on their premise-concept, presentation, and originality of the story.
