Young Films Foundation 2020 - Storytellers' Lab

Young Film Foundations 2020 Storytellers' Lab is an exciting residency on the Isle of Skye, taking place from 24 to 30 May 2020 for six new and emerging writers to develop their film & TV projects.

The residency is a creative and inclusive space where mentors and participants engage across all works and discussions. The week is a mixture of direct one-to-one mentoring and project work, classroom based discussions and masterclasses, and practical studio and editing work.

During the week, each writer will be given the opportunity to run a studio session where a Director mentor will support them through the process of filming a scene from their own work using established actors.

At the end of the residency, writers will sit down with YFF and work out a plan going forward for the project. Writers will then benefit from an on-going relationship with the company.

As in previous years, one place will be offered to a Gaelic project and participant.
