2016 Latino Screenwriting Project


The 2016 Latino Screenwriting Project is a 3-day workshop designed to support emerging U.S. based Latino screenwriters and filmmakers working on independent feature narrative screenplays. Organized with consulting support from the Sundance Institute, the workshop will take place from February 24th through February 27th during the 38th Annual CineFestival, the nation’s longest running Latino film festival.

         The mission of the Latino Screenwriting Project is to support emerging Latino screenwriters and to elevate the presence, representation and quality of stories that narrate the U.S. Latino experience.  Four screenwriters will be selected to participate in a 3-day intensive workshop that will include panels, screenings and one-on-one feedback sessions under the mentorship of Sundance Lab Advisors. 

        The project aims to provide these screenwriters with a network of support and a practical environment where they can get quality feedback, mentoring and inspiration to further hone their craft, polish their screenplays and take their stories to the next level.
