New Voices Fellowship for Screenwriters

Recommended Posts

Greetings from Asia Society India Centre.


I would like to take a moment to bring to your attention our launch of the third edition of the New Voices Fellowship for Screenwriters 2015-2016, a programme designed to identify, encourage, mentor and support seven talented independent screenwriters in India, helping them find their own creative voices, enabling them to incubate their ideas and refine their craft.  By working in collaboration with and taking guidance from eminent screenwriters and filmmakers, we seek to nurture the diversity of contemporary Indian writing, while providing screenwriters a platform to develop powerful, nuanced and well-crafted scripts while exploring new approaches to the art of writing for cinema.


This year we ask for scripts with a difference. We seek stories that are gender sensitive, women centric AND driven by well-defined women characters. By Making Heroine the New Hero, we want to expose new writers to the experience of writing from a female character’s point of view and increase the number of women-oriented scripts in the film industry.
 
NVFS invites writers from across India to submit an original story for consideration by 31 July, 2015.

NVFS has been made possible by a grant from the Time Warner Foundation.

Cause Partner: Laadli, a media advocacy initiative of Population First.

Please find below a copy of the announcement. We thought this announcement may be of interest to you for website listings, articles, etc. and we would appreciate if you could circulate the announcement amongst your network of colleagues and friends as well in order to attract a wide range of scripts.
