The Filmmakers' Workshop serves a specially curated group of film and TV writers each year. We focus on fresh, ambitious work and prepare writers for success in a competitive industry. Participants gather during the NYSAF Summer Season in the Hudson Valley, where they receive a table read of their script with professional actors, attend the readings of fellow writers, and receive one-on-one feedback from industry professionals. Six months later, a follow-up retreat allows for additional access to the NYSAF community and subsequent mentor support.
