Featuring a tailored, process-oriented approach that mirrors our celebrated development of plays and musicals, the Filmmakers’ Workshop supports early-career screenwriters and television writers with creative development and intensive professional mentorship. In a week-long residency at Vassar during the Powerhouse Season, followed by a week in NYC, participants receive one-on-one feedback sessions with professional mentors, developmental screenplay readings, panel discussions, screenings, and production discussions all designed to bring each project closer to completion.
The 2017 Filmmakers' Workshop was in residence during the Powerhouse Season from July 10 - 16, 2017.
