The New York Stage and Film Filmmakers' Workshop features a tailored, process-oriented approach that mirrors our celebrated development of plays and musicals, and is one of only a handful of programs in the country to provide the immediate and necessary steps in the development of the filmmaker.
Its main feature is a Summer Residency at Vassar College during the annual Powerhouse Season, during which early-career screenwriters and TV writers engage in one-on-one feedback sessions with professional mentors, panel discussions, screenings, developmental readings, and production discussions all designed to bring each script and project closer to completion. We then bring the group back together 6-8 months later for the NYC Convening, which features further mentor sessions, project development, and industry networking.  


The 2018 Filmmakers' Workshop will be in residence at Powerhouse from July 10 - 15, 2018. 

Filmmakers' Workshop Producer: Marin Gazzaniga
