2013 Screenwriters Intensive: Philadephia

Conceived as part of the Feature Film Program's Diversity Initiative, this one-day workshop supports a select group of 15 writers and writer/directors developing a narrative feature screenplay. Fellows have the opportunity to hone their craft in a working session with longtime creative advisor Joan Tewkesbury, screen the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award-winning film Fruitvale, followed by a discussion with writer/director Ryan Coogler, and take part in a writers roundtable conversation on screenwriting with Lab and Festival alumni including Miguel Arteta, Gina Prince Bythewood, and Ava DuVernay.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
