About this Event

About the Inspired Film Incubator:

For screenwriters and filmmakers who want to create their best work, the Inspired Film Incubator provides a positive, professional, creative environment to network, learn, and workshop scripts and film roughcuts. The script-to-screen format brings screenwriters and filmmakers together to connect and help one another. Each workshop will include networking and presenting scripts and film roughcuts followed by peer and mentor feedback. Most workshops will also include talks with industry experts to help participants create projects with their audiences and markets in mind. Participants agree to respect the copyright of presented projects.

Who the Inspired Film Incubator is for:

The Inspired Film Incubator is for film, television, and digital screenwriters and filmmakers (emerging to established), of all genres, genders, and backgrounds who wish to have their independent projects workshopped or who can provide feedback for other people’s projects. We welcome all experience levels: from emerging creators of one or a few projects to award-winning writers and director-producers. The common ground is that everyone has some knowledge of the screenwriting and/or filmmaking process so they can contribute to the conversations. We encourage voices from all communities and backgrounds. A mix of experiences and perspectives ensures innovative ideas and discussions.

Participants do not need to submit a project to attend. We encourage those without projects to attend for the networking and professional development, and to provide feedback for other people's projects.

Registration and submission guidelines:

Please read the guidelines before registering for workshops.

Participants can submit one project per workshop but we encourage everyone to attend multiple workshops to network and help fellow artists.

Space is limited. You must register to attend.

NOTE: Registration offers you 3 ticket options: "attend and submit script", "attend and submit film", or "attend without submitting a script or film". Please choose 1 option. All options include admission.

Participant eligibility:

  • Participants must have some experience or training in film, television, or media and can be of any experience level from student/emerging to established.
  • Participants can attend with or without a project to workshop. Those without a current project are encouraged to attend for networking, professional development, and to provide feedback to help their fellow artists.
