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:
