We are pleased to announce the inaugural Sidewalk Story Lab, in partnership with Stowe Story Labs, happening in Birmingham August 21-24.

Stowe Story Labs brings screenwriters, filmmakers, and creative producers together with seasoned industry professionals to help get projects made and seen.

This four-day intensive program will introduce writers to key considerations when adapting works for the screen.

Sessions will focus on:

The narrative elements of structure, theme, and subtext
Practical, usable advice on how to talk about story within the industry and to different audiences (financiers, producers, talent, etc.)

The story development and production processes
Why This Story? – meaning intended audience, size of market, and how to get your film made and seen

The aim of the Lab is to prepare participants to best place themselves and their projects in the film industry.

Mentors are top industry professionals working on all aspects of film and TV projects. For a roster of current Stowe Story Labs mentors, please visit: https://stowestorylabs.org/mentors

This program is suitable for established and emerging screenwriters, filmmakers, and creative producers.

For each Lab Stowe Story Labs look for applicants who demonstrate talent, an interesting story idea, and a commitment to learning skills necessary to get work made and seen in this complex and collaborative industry.

We will not offer notes on each project during the lab.
