NEW VOICES FELLOWSHIP FOR SCREENWRITERS
Asia Society India Centre announces the launch of thesecond edition of New Voices Fellowship for Screenwriters (NVFS) 2013 – 2014, a programme to identify, encourage and support a group of six talented independent screenwriters to develop their feature film scripts by working in a dynamic and innovative environment with guidance from eminent filmmakers and screenwriters. We seek 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. We invite writers from across India to submit an original story for consideration between 1 October and 15 December, 2013.

"We are delighted to see NVFS grow and evolve during its second edition, which is made possible by Time Warner Foundation extending its grant for another two years. Coordinated by Asia Society’s offices in New York and India, this fellowship represents Asia Society’s commitment to fostering creativity and nurturing new talent. The first edition successfully saw six emerging screenwriters through a process of writing a feature length script under the guidance of industry professionals. By incorporating insights from the first edition, we hope to provide an enriching, rigorous and thoughtful programme for our second-year fellows.”
