Apply Now: Athena IRIS Screenwriting Lab

The Athena IRIS Screenwriting Lab is accepting scripts for its 2019 edition. If you’re a female-identifying writer with a feature-length screenplay centering on at least one woman in a leadership role, then this workshop is for you. 

The Lab is a two-day script development intensive that will take place February 28 and March 1, 2019, during the 9th Annual Athena Film Festival. Designed for women screenwriters who have not yet had a feature-length script, pilot, or teleplay produced, the Lab is also a chance for participants to receive seasoned mentorship.

Eight writers will be accepted to the 2019 Lab. The Lab is looking for projects from all genres about women from all racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, and cultural groups.

The 2019 Athena Film Fest runs February 28 - March 3 at Barnard College in New York City.

The submission deadline is November 7, 2018. Click here for more information.
