Screenwriters Intensive • Philadelphia
Saturday, October 26, 2013
With support from a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Sundance Institute will be hosting a Screenwriters Intensive in Philadelphia on Saturday, October 26, 2013. In collaboration with Scribe Video Center, this one-day workshop will support 8 to 12 local screenwriters who are currently developing a narrative feature-length screenplay. Veteran screenwriter Joan Tewkesbury (Nashville, Thieves Like Us) will lead Designed Obstacles, a working session that will provide each writer with tools to delve deeply into their characters and make vital discoveries to enrich their stories. The workshop will be followed by a private conversation with Sundance Institute staff and a Sundance alumnus filmmaker, as well as a public reception for the community.
We are currently seeking applicants for the Sundance Institute Screenwriters Intensive at Scribe. In order to be eligible, applicants must be based in the Philadelphia area, and must be developing a feature-length narrative screenplay. Additionally, we are seeking writers whose projects fit broadly into the Sundance model; specifically, films that are independent in terms of story and spirit, character-driven, and reflective of the writer’s authentic voice and personal, unique vision.
*Application guidelines can be found at scribe.org/workshops/sundance. The deadline to apply is October 4, 2013.
