SCREENWRITING INCUBATOR

CHELSEA FILM FESTIVAL SCREENWRITING INCUBATOR

The Chelsea Film Festival Screenwriting Incubator will host its 1st edition in 2023 sponsored by TD Ready Commitment to uplift 10 outstanding NY-based BIPOC screenwriter-directors in support of their next live action short film under 5 minutes. Participants will go through an intensive script workshop alongside a professional mentor, film their scripts with funding support and screen their completed projects at the 11th Edition of the 2023 Chelsea Film Festival. Ultimately, one short film will be selected as the winner and awarded a $5k grant from TD for their next project.

BIPOC screenwriters interested must submit their resume, biography and a brief synopsis (short paragraph, 2-3 sentences) via FilmFreeway by January 2nd. Once submitted, selected screenwriters will be invited to submit their final application.
