The Young Films Foundation accepting applications for Storyteller Residency

The Young Films Foundation is currently accepting applications for its 2020 Storyteller’s residency, which will be held on Skye from 24th to 30th May. On Skye, writers are able to incubate their ideas for feature film, TV drama and comedy with the support of some of the UK’s most eminent industry mentors.

The format of the week is a mix of one-to-one mentoring (both project-led and professional development), classroom discussions and masterclasses. During the week each writer is given the opportunity to run a studio session where a Director will support them through the process of filming a scene from their own work using established, professional actors.

To be eligible you must be:

  • Over 18
  • Resident in Scotland
  • Not in full-time education
  • Have no more than one writer’s credit, of your own work, for a distributed film or broadcast tv show.
