How will the process work?


Beginning today, female writers who meet the criteria detailed on www.blcklst.com can opt their scripts into consideration. The deadline for submission is November 21, 2015.

The Black List will invite four promising non-professional female writers to the Mini-Lab. Each writer will workshop one screenplay through one-on-one sessions with professional mentors and 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. 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, theAthena Film Festival and the Black List to participate in the workshops.
  • Official submission requirements are below.

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