SIFF Catalyst First Draft - Script Submission Application

Our Catalyst First Draft screenwriting series provides writers with the opportunity for immediate and direct feedback from industry professionals and film fans, alike. If your script is selected, it will be read live in front of an audience, who will have the opportunity to provide feedback, along with two industry "script doctors", to help get your project ready to go in front of the cameras. In addition, participating writers will have access to the full support of SIFF's dedicated staff assigned to this new and exciting professional development program.
