Producer Cassian Elwes and Black List founder Franklin Leonard have unveiled the creation of the Cassian Elwes Independent Screenwriting Fellowship, wherein one unrepresented writer with lifetime earnings not exceeding $5,000, with a screenplay of indie sensibility, will receive an all-expenses paid trip to the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, and mentorship from Elwes himself.

Writers with scripts on the Black List or who have had scripts on the site since their launch in 2012 will be able to opt into consideration for the opportunity until December 1, at which time a shortlist of writers will be shared with Elwes, who will decide on one writer to make the trip. 

The Black List and Elwes ("Dallas Buyers Club," "All Is Lost") plan to award the fellowship annually.
