Athena Film Festival Writers Lab

Talent Development Labs Serving Writers for Film and Television

Since 2017, The Athena Film Festival has run The Athena Film Festival Writers Lab. The Lab is a three-day creative development workshop for emerging writers working on women-centric leadership projects. The lab provides storytellers with creative guidance, feedback, pitch training, mentorship, a robust supportive network, and so much more. Over the course of the Lab,  participants will learn from experienced mentors, writers, and industry members. 

Participants from our lab have gone on to win grants and fellowships and have even gone on to write for popular series such as the CW’s Riverdale, Netflix’s Ginny and Georgia, and Grey’s Anatomy.

See below for information on our latest cohort of writers for The Athena Film Festival Writers Lab.
