Call for Applications: Film Independent’s Screenwriting Lab

Film Independent’s Screenwriting Lab is an intensive five-week program running two to three evenings a week in Los Angeles in August and September. The Lab is designed to help screenwriters improve their craft, develop their voices as writers, and take their current scripts to the next level. During the Lab, Fellows receive feedback on their scripts from the Lab Mentor, outside advisors, and the other writers in the program.

A secondary goal of the program is to help advance the careers of the Lab Fellows by introducing them to film professionals who can advise them on both the craft and business of screenwriting. Lab Fellows have several guest-speaker sessions with established screenwriters to do case study of their films, hear about their career, and discuss the writing process. Additionally, Screenwriting Fellows have one-on-one meetings with established screenwriters, producers, and other industry professionals who act as advisors on the Fellows’ projects.

A maximum of ten projects are selected for the Lab. Writing partners are welcome to apply as teams.
