SHIFFT SCRIPT LAB
We are excited to announce the launch of SHIFFT Script Lab, a new writing lab for female and non-binary screenwriters in Wales.
In 2015 filmmaker Carys Lewis founded FEM Script Lab, a screenwriting lab in Toronto, which provided a space for female screenwriters to workshop new material while receiving guidance from film and TV industry mentors. After three successful years of growth, the lab received support from Ffilm Cymru Wales to bring the model to Wales – creating SHIFFT Script Lab.
SHIFFT Script Lab is a place for screenwriters to share and receive feedback on work that is in development. It will provide actor, peer and mentor feedback in an environment that encourages innovation and creative risk-taking. The labs mission is to nurture writers, invest in female driven stories and promote women as creators of content.
We are accepting script submissions for our upcoming lab sessions. To participate in the lab, send us your script and a short bio about yourself and your work. We accept scripts of all forms and genres (features, shorts, TV, documentary, etc). Please e-mail your script submissions to: SHIFFTScriptLab@gmail.com
UPCOMING LAB DATES:
JANUARY 29, 2019 (7PM-10PM @ Rabble Studio, Cardiff)
Deadline to submit: JANUARY 3, 2019 @ 5PM GMT
Actors who are interested in reading at the lab can contact us via e-mail for more information on how to get involved.
SCRIPT LAB uses an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female” and we encourage submissions from trans women and non-binary people. We aim to create a safe and welcoming environment for all screenwriters to share their stories.
