NFDC Screenwriters’ Lab 2012: deadline extended till June 10

By NewsDesk • Published on June 1, 2012

The deadline for NFDC Screenwriters’ Lab 2012 has been extended to June 10, 2012.

Conducted by National Film Development Corporation Ltd. (NFDC) in association with Binger FilmLab, Netherlands and Venice International Film Festival; Screenwriters’ Lab is a 2-part workshop designed to prepare screenwriters with original Indian stories for working with the international filmmaking market.

The lab aims at improving a completed screenplay in its final stages and to increase its international marketability.

The Screenwriters’ Lab 2012 will give an opportunity to six independent screenwriters to develop their skill under the guidance of a variety of industry experts from across the globe. Through one-on-one sessions with their Mentors, the Screenwriter Fellows will be advised on tools and techniques required to improve their scripts and methods to pitch the same in the international domain.

The screenwriters’ lab also creates a special opportunity for the scripts that already have a producer involved in the project. These scripts, if selected, gain a direct entry to NFDC’s Co-Production Market.

The 1st Session of the Lab will be held during the Venice International Film Festival in September.

The 2nd session will be held at Film Bazaar, Goa from in November where participants will apply their training and pitch their revised screenplays to participants at the film market.

The workshop has introduced an entry fee of INR 3000 from its 2012 edition.
