Drishyam Films, in partnership with the Sundance Institute, USA, is organising the Drishyam-Sundance Screenwriters Lab 2016 to be held in Jodhpur, Rajasthan in March, 2016.

The Lab is inviting applications as a part of its Open Submission Process.

The Drishyam-Sundance Screenwriters Lab will provide an opportunity for writers to develop their work under the guidance of accomplished international advisors in an environment that encourages intelligent storytelling with a global scope.

DEADLINE: The deadline for submission of scripts has been extended to November 30, 2015.

ELIGIBILITY: The Lab is for filmmakers making their first or second narrative feature; co-writers, writer/directors, or writer/director teams are encouraged to send in their scripts, which should be independent in terms of story and spirit and also in terms of budget.
