SFTV Film Independent Fellowships

(137)

LMU School of Film and Television, in partnership with Film Independent, is proud to announce the following two fellowship opportunities exclusive for LMU Alumni. Please visit Film Independent’s website for more information and to apply for the Screenwriting Lab and Project Involve fellowships.

2016 LMU SCREENWRITING FELLOWSHIP
Through personalized feedback from experienced industry professionals and other writers in the program, Screenwriting Fellows will gain the tools to revise and refine their scripts for production. The Screenwriting Lab also helps to further the careers of its Fellows by introducing them to film industry veterans who can offer guidance on both the craft and business of screenwriting. Each Screenwriting Fellow will be paired with a Creative Advisor, with whom they’ll work one-on-one and in Lab sessions to further develop their project over the course of the program. A variety of guest speakers may screen and discuss their own films, or offer insights into their career trajectories, and a final retreat offers further opportunity for individualized feedback and discussion with additional established filmmakers and producers.

The LMU Fellowship includes a $10,000 cash grant, as well as inclusion in Film Independent’s annual Screenwriting Lab. To be eligible, applicants must be alumni of Loyola Marymount University. The extended deadline for applications for LMU alumni is May 23rd, 2016.
