The Screenwriters program of the Oxbelly Retreat supports eight screenwriters developing their second features who are seeking to strengthen their craft and push the boundaries of their unique cinematic voice.
The program primarily consists of one-on-one sessions with screenwriter advisors and craft sessions with their peers and experienced writer, director and producer advisors, equally dedicated to empowering risk-taking and bold storytelling.
The Screenwriters program is led by Program Director Nicole Perlman. The Oxbelly Retreat is held at Costa Navarino in historic Messinia, Greece. There is no cost to apply and all expenses for fellows are covered.
The Screenwriters program is open to writers applying with their second feature film. The main criteria of selection are quality of writing and strength & originality of the idea.
