IFP scribe lab goes biannual

Participants discuss scripts with industry professionals during 7-week program

IFP/West’s Screenwriting Lab has expanded its workshop to twice a year and is currently seeking submissions for the fall lab, which runs in November and December.

“The Screenwriters Lab is one of the best ways to provide one-on-one relationships with professionals in the industry, so we decided to present two sessions per year,” Dawn Hudson, executive director of IPF/West, said.

IFP/West’s Screenwriters Lab is a seven-week program in which participants meet twice a week to discuss their scripts and talk with industry professionals. Each lab participant also has individual meetings with two lab advisers — established screenwriters, agents and producers.

Applicants must submit an application form; one copy of one feature length script; no more than two pages of a short synopsis of the script; a cover letter describing the status of the project as well as explaining one’s interest in the lab; resumes/bios of key people attached to the project, if any; and a $50 application fee. The submissions deadline is Sept. 29.

Regardless of acceptance into the lab, all submitted scripts will receive written coverage by a professional reader.

Participants must be IFP/West members. Non-members may apply but, if accepted, must join IFP/West in order to participate. The program is free to all participants. For more information, call Josh Welsh at (310) 475-4379, ext. 53. In May, IFP/West held its second Screenwriters Lab for 12 members.
