Indigenous Screenwriting Intensive II - ImagineNATIVE

Indigenous Screenwriting Intensive II - ImagineNATIVE

Deadline: 
Thursday, August 1, 2019

The imagineNATIVE Indigenous Screenwriting Intensive is entering its second year!

The Indigenous Screenwriting Intensive will support four Indigenous screenwriters, two residing in Canada and two residing internationally. Over the course of the year, each participant will develop a feature film script from concept/treatment to final draft. With a focus on potential optioning, the program will culminate in a live reading of script excerpts at the imagineNATIVE Festival in October, 2020.

Indigenous story editors will support the writers’ projects at each stage, providing feedback, advice, and writing resources. Screenwriters in the program will receive financial support throughout the Intensive, with stipends at the completion of key milestones.

It is expected that each participant will meet deadlines and participate in any group or one-on-one calls or Skype meetings, and will attend in person at the group workshop (March 2020). Travel, accommodation and hospitality will be provided.

Part of this Intensive is sharing your work with the script editors, select iN staff, and the other participants for feedback. You will be expected to read and provide commentary on the other participants’ work.

2018 Participants: Migizi Pensoneau - Edumacation, Gail Maurice - Rosie, Bryson Chun - Where is My Mind?, and Alexandra Lazarowich’s Two Funerals, a Round dance and a Wedding.
