Event description


Join BLACK FILM SPACE for a weekend screenwriting retreat Thursday, June 22nd to Sunday, June 25th, 2017. The retreat is designed to offer up to twelve screenwriters a quiet supportive space to write as much as they would like.

In between, we'll have optional screenwriting workshops as well as yoga and meditation breaks.


May 1st is the deadline for the $100 deposit to secure a spot. June 8th is the deadline to pay the remainder.

Estimated Costs:

Housing - $160 to $200

Food/Beverages - $100

Transportation - $90 to $100

Total Estimated Cost: $350 to $400



Why are there an estimated cost?

The more writers, the less spent on a rental house and van. The final cost will be calculated after the deposit deadline.

Where are we staying?

More than likely, two hours in upstate New York.

How are we getting to the house?

Reggie, co-founder of Black Film Space, will drive us in a van.

What are we eating?

We will purchase groceries and order catered meals (based on your preferences) so you can spend less time cooking and more time writing.

What time are we leaving and returning?

We will depart from New York City at 12:00pm and we'll leave the rental house on Sunday at 4pm.

Where am I going to sleep?

More than likely in a bed, but if you want to come to this event, please be okay with sleeping on a futon, couch, air mattress, or sharing a room with another writer. If you have to sleep in a bed because of health reasons, please let us know. When we arrive at the house, we will pick names out of a hat to figure out who sleeps on the beds.

If you have any other questions e-mail us at blackfilmspace@gmail.com. We are excited to host this event and you hope you join us!
