CHELSEA FILM FESTIVAL SCREENWRITING INCUBATOR
The 2023 Chelsea Film Festival Screenwriting Incubator sponsored by TD Ready Commitment, is dedicated to supporting 10 outstanding NY-based BIPOC screenwriter-directors. During six months, BIPOC filmmakers will work on their 1-5 minute live-action short films. Participants will attend workshop meetings with a professional mentor, film their project, and screen their completed work at the Chelsea Film Festival’s 11th Edition this fall. One short film will be selected as the winner and awarded a grant from TD for their future project.
RULES & GUIDELINES
BIPOC screenwriters interested must submit their resume, biography, a brief synopsis (short paragraph, 2-3 sentences) and screenplay under 6 pages inclusive of cover page via FilmFreeway by January 2nd (deadline extended until January 11th). Once submitted, selected screenwriters will be invited to submit their final application.
