HerArts Film Lab, an international script development lab for women and non-binary filmmakers, is accepting submissions for its Spring 2024 edition. It will run from April 29, 2024 to May 5, 2024 in Paestum, in the southern Italian region of Campania. The lab is addressed to writers and directors globally, currently developing scripts for their fiction feature-length films or TV series pilots, who would like to workshop their projects in a supportive environment with experienced mentors and fellow female writers.

The workshop was created by Filmmaker and WIFTM Italy Member, Eliza Subotowicz.

Deadline to apply: February 10.

Each edition invites 8-10 filmmakers (or teams) from around the world. The lab especially welcomes women filmmakers from countries where gender inequality in the film industry is most pronounced. As English is the working language of the lab, good knowledge of written and spoken English is required.

Believing in the importance of women’s presence in cinema, their stories and their active participation in the creation of the film industry, HerArts FilmLab have designed a workshop to support and empower participants’ voices. HerArts Lab is meant to serve as a platform for exchanging thoughts, stories and ideas, nurturing female talent and giving it exposure to the international film community.
