We are very pleased to launch Adapt to Film, our new five-month training programme for writers

Adapt to Film is funded with support from Creative Skillset, BFI Film Forever and the National Lottery

Starting in November 2016, this five-month training programme will support ten UK-based professional writers or writer/directors to develop their craft so they can turn novels, short stories, films, plays, biographies, blogs, journalistic articles and other factual writing into market-ready screenplays.

As a participating writer you will attend three two-day residential workshops, with additional mentoring in between. You will be guided through an analysis of source material to find the screen story, while drawing on the expertise of sales and distribution specialists, producers, other writers working in adaptation and legal professionals. Adapt to Film will culminate in the opportunity for you to pitch your project to financiers.

Applicants should have demonstrable credits/publications in relevant disciplines (film, literature, theatre,journalism, biography). You should also have a proven basic knowledge of screenwriting and will be required to provide a screenwriting sample as part of the application process.
