Film Hub South East NETWORK Project Lab (Writers) Brighton


11am to 5pm

Lighthouse, Brighton

Emerging writers based in the South East are invited to apply to our upcoming Project Lab (Writers) in Brighton.

Taking place on Monday 12 November 2018 at Lighthouse in Brighton, this Project Lab will offer support to talented writers based in the South East hoping to develop a feature film treatment or a short film script.

The lab will focus on story and development and will be led by Script Editor Kate Leys (see Kate’s biog here) with support from Film Hub South East’s BFI NETWORK Talent Executive Tom Wightman. Each participant of the lab will be invited to offer feedback to the rest of the group.

These labs are set up to support writers and teams who may be interested in applying to the BFI Network funds for early treatment development and short film funding.

Lunch and refreshments throughout the day will be supplied.

With many thanks to Lighthouse for hosting and supporting this event.
