Broadsides Screenplay Lab

All too often, writers, who craft the stories everyone else in the filmmking process depends upon, are themselves marginalized at festival events. We created the Broadsides Lab to give them a turn for their work to enjoy the spotlight. We invite all the screenplay finalists to submit a scene which we then cast and have professional actors read for them and an invited audience.

Once a filmmaker has been a part of our festival, we want to continue to support them in their craft. So we created the Legacy Project to give them a venue to use as their own. In the annual Invitational, any writer or filmmaker who has been a part of the festival can make a short film that fits the year's 3 rules and be guaranteed a screening during our Legacy Showcase. In addition, we screen a feature film of an alumna to give their work an added boost in our Legacy Feature program.
