The Athena Film Festival is excited to announce a new writers fellowship, launched in partnership with The Loreen Arbus Foundation. This fellowship will provide support for two screenwriters with disabilities to attend the Athena Writers Lab. This Fellowship will include a travel stipend (for in-person lab), ongoing mentorship for 6 months following the conclusion of the lab, and funding to ensure all lab activities are fully accessible.
The Athena Film Festival Writers Lab is a three-day creative development workshop for emerging writers which provides storytellers with creative guidance, training, industry access, and a valuable, supportive network. Applicants must submit a project that features a woman or women characters in a leadership role or position at the center of the story.
