Applications are now open for Developing New Voices: Writing for the Screen
Led by screenwriter/director KATIE MCNEICE, this workshop will help selected emerging applicants to articulate and develop a story they want to tell for the screen.
Katie McNeice is a multi-award winning Writer/Director who crafts thoughtful identity-films with a particular focus on sexuality and gender. Shorts include IN ORBIT, WHALE FALL, and the upcoming LAMBING and FOCAIL BAILE CROÍ. Her debut feature screenplay is WHO WE LOVE which she co-wrote with Graham Cantwell. Upcoming features include THE DEEPEST BREATH which she’s adapting from the LGBT children’s novel by Meg Grehan and New Stage Films’ THE LAST WATCH, written by Sam Ulemann and produced by Juliane Wothe.
Katie will share her own journey and will empower applicants to bring their stories into sharper focus and shape them for the short film form.
The participants will then watch film screenings and attend panel discussions.
Applications are by application form HERE. Deadline for applications is Friday 25th March.
A short CV/ BIO and a personal statement telling us why you want to take part and what stories your voice and experience might bring to the screen are required.
Please indicate if you identify as part of a group that is currently underrepresented on screen – this includes, but is not limited to, gender, class, race, age, ethnic minority, disability or LGBTQ.
There is no charge for this workshop/screenings but the number of participants will be limited.
The festival will host panel discussions and screenplay discussion and awards over the course of the festival.
