Write Over Here: Screenwriting Residency

Fall 2022

Application Deadline: July 27, 2022
Program Dates: October 10 – 28, 2022


Write Over Here is a three-week hybrid screenwriting residency that offers participants the opportunity to focus on tools to create the time and space to write from home and at Banff Centre through online and in-person programming.

Intermixed with faculty to support their practice as required, participants will meet with the cohort online for the first week, and on campus for the following two weeks. These will include daily gatherings, where we share readings, workshops, deeper discussions around process, and Q&A sessions.

What Does the Program Offer?

Writers will deepen their screenwriting artistry and technical application through faculty mentorship, podcast workshops, access to screenwriting software, group discussions, and concluding Q&A sessions.

The residency provides the opportunity for writers to build peer relationships and expand their professional networks to support and create collaborative opportunities in the future.

This is a self-motivated residency and encourages participants to discover best practices to engage and inspire writing to happen at home and away.

Who Should Apply?

This program invites emerging to mid-career Indigenous writers and screenwriters from across Canada and international. Screenwriters can apply with experience from any genre and script length.

*Financial aid of up to 100% of tuition fee, meal and accommodation fee is available for this program.
