How will the process work?
The Cassian Elwes Independent Screenwriting Fellowship is an annual program designed to encourage and identify new talent in the field of independent cinema by awarding one screenwriter with an all-expenses paid trip to the 2020 Sundance Film Festival and an opportunity to meet with Producer Cassian Elwes (Mudbound, Lee Daniels’ The Butler, Dallas Buyers Club).
Each year, The Black List will choose ten screenplays imbued with an independent spirit by unrepresented screenwriters, which will be sent on to Mr. Elwes for his consideration. The short list will be determined in early December, and the Fellowship recipient will be selected by Mr. Elwes by calendar year's end.
