Deadline to apply June 14th, 2019
We're looking for enthusiastic and knowledgeable film lovers to join our screenplay reading committee for ATLFF 2020. Spots are limited and only serious applicants will be considered.
A reader is a volunteer whose role is to read and review screenplay submissions, providing notes and recommendations for programmers to review when they evaluate submissions. Each year ATLFF must narrow down over 1,200 screenplay submissions to the 5 winning screenplays that will make up our program. The work of reader is invaluable to this process.
Readers can earn up to an All-Access Badge to the 2020 festival depending on the number of screenplays they read!
The ATLFF Reading Committee is comprised of 50 to 100 readers who are academics, filmmakers, screeners for other festivals, ATLFF alums, and/or regular ATLFF attendees.
PLEASE NOTE: Readers do not program screenplays for the festival nor make any decisions regarding programming. They are not representatives of the programming team nor are they staff or affiliates of the Atlanta Film Festival/Atlanta Film Society. By filling out this application, you acknowledge the volunteer nature of the role.
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The title and author have been removed to avoid bias. Once you have completed the screenplay, please answer the questions below.
There are two screenplay options below: one for new readers and one for returning readers. Please be sure to select the correct one. Returning Readers may not read the same screenplay they read for their previous applications.
