Always held that secret desire to be a screenwriter?

Well, here’s your chance to work towards it. Asia Society India Centre, a not-for-profit institution that aims to be a key forum for catalysing connections and exchange across and within Asia, has announced the launch of the second edition of New Voices Fellowship for Screenwriters (NVFS), 2013-2014.

The goal of the programme is to build an artistic community that reflects the diversity of contemporary Indian writing, providing screenwriters a platform to develop powerful, nuanced and well-crafted scripts while exploring new approaches to the art of writing for cinema.

All you need to to do is submit an original story for consideration before December 15. The fellowship will be guided by an advisory council, consisting of members such as Anjum Rajabali, Dev Benegal and Jaideep Sahni, among others. The New Voices Fellowship for Screenwriters will follow an open application process to select six screenwriters from across India for an eight-month long fellowship.
