FILMMAKERS' WORKSHOP

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 reconvene the group six months later in New York City for follow-up mentor sessions, master classes, and industry networking. 

 

The 2019 Filmmakers' Workshop will be in residence during the summer Powerhouse Season for one week starting July 8th, 2019.

Director: Marin Gazzaniga
