Apply To The Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective Writers Workshop

The BFC Writers Workshop, a subgroup of the Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective, is now seeking applications for the Fall 2015 season. The collective meets on a monthly basis to workshop its members’ screenplays. We are a community of filmmakers and writers who strive to improve our work by supporting each other. We are looking for passionate, unique writers who are dedicated to fostering community and creating compelling screenplays in any genre.

To apply, please email the following to writers@brooklynfilmmakerscollective.com:

  • Two writing samples (shorts, features, works-in-progress are accepted). Our selection process comprises reading excerpts from your works, so if you have any particular section you would want us to read, please clarify. We’ll be reading only the first 15 pages unless specified otherwise.
  • A one-page document describing a bit about yourself, your background/experience, what you are working on now, what you plan to workshop, and what skills or knowledge beyond writing can you offer to the group (e.g. e.g. legal advice, web design, social media, illustration, public speaking, etc.)

We see diversity as a source of strength. Therefore, priority will go to applicants who are women, of ethnic minorities, and/or of the LGBTQ community.

Applications will close July 15. Notifications will be made mid-August. Please note the Fall 2015 season will begin September of this year.

For any questions, please feel free to contact writers@brooklynfilmmakerscollective.com
