The deadline for Film Independent's Screenwriting Lab is fast approaching. By Monday, April 1st, writers may submit a feature-length narrative screenplay for consideration in this five week program in LA.
In September and October, the ten accepted applicants will have the opportunity to hone their craft in an intensive, industry-level environment. Writers will receive feedback on their screenplay from Lab Mentors and peers, and meet knowledgeable film professionals. In addition, students of the lab will get a pass to the LA Film Festival, and gain eligibility to join the Independent Writers Caucus of the WGAW.
Previous Screenwriting Lab instructors and speakers include Ava DuVernay (writer/director of last year's highly acclaimed "Middle of Nowhere"), Rian Johnson ("Looper") and Zal Batmanglij and Brit Marling ("The Sound of My Voice"). Visit Film Independent's website for more information.
