The late deadline for our 2023 TV Retreat & Fellowship Contest is right around the corner on Monday, September 5th. Take advantage of our late submission price by submitting by the 5th.
CineStory selects about 30 emerging screenwriters through its annual TV competition for a 4-day intensive retreat held in April 29 – May 2, 2023. All retreat attendees will have the opportunity to meet with 3 industry professionals and receive personalized feedback on their projects, as well as first-hand advice on how to navigate a career in the entertainment industry. In addition, attendees participate in a mock Drama and a mock Comedy writers’ room so they can experience what it is like inside an actual TV writers’ room.
The TV Fellowship
One exceptional writer also will be selected as the CineStory Fellow and will receive a prize valued at $5,000 USD that includes free tuition and lodging to the TV Retreat, a $1,000 cash prize, and a 12-month mentorship from 2 industry mentors to help enhance the Fellow’s career path.
