OPPORTUNITIES –Women Writers! Athena Film Festival Black List Mini-Lab — open for submissions


Athena Film Festival Black List Mini-Lab

We are excited to announce that the opt-in is open for our first Athena Film Festival Black List Mini-Lab on February 18-19, 2016 in New York City.

Female writers who meet the criteria detailed on can opt their scripts into consideration.

The Black List will invite four promising non-professional female writers to the MiniLab. Each writer will workshop one feature-length screenplay through one-on-one sessions with professional mentors. The Mini-Lab will also include a peer workshop. Screenplays submitted for consideration must include a strong female protagonist in a leadership role at the center of the story and should not objectify or stereotype women. Professional mentors will be announced in the weeks leading up to the Mini-Lab. The writers will also receive passes to attend the Athena Film Festival.

The selection process will work like this:

  • Ten female writers will be invited, based on the strength of their scripts as evaluated by the Black List screenplay evaluation service, to submit a one-page personal statement.
  • From those personal statements, four writers will be selected by the mentors, the Athena Film Festival and the Black List to participate in the workshops.


Travel and accommodations will not be provided for Mini-Lab participants. If you are applying to the Mini-Lab and do not live in the New York metropolitan area you will need to cover your own expenses. Some meals will be provided for the participants.


Note: In order for new script evaluations to qualify for the Mini-Lab, they must be purchased by midnight on the Evaluations Deadline.
