UK&I labs

The Writers Lab, the first program of its kind devoted exclusively to script development for woman screenwriters over 40, in partnership with Untamed Stories, joined forces with Cate Blanchett’s Dirty Films, in association with Birds’ Eye View, to bring its pioneering Lab to the UK and Ireland.

The Writers Lab UK&I 2022 is presented in association with Dancing Ledge Productions (THE RESPONDER), Screen Scotland, Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland, Northern Ireland Screen, Birds’ Eye View and Ffilm Cymru Wales & BFI NETWORK with funding from the National Lottery.

The incredible work that The Writers Lab are doing in providing a platform for underrepresented creative voices resonates deeply with all of us at Dirty Films, so we jumped at the opportunity to support their expansion to the UK and Ireland. We’re excited to see the results of this year’s lab and we look forward to working with Untamed Stories, NYWIFT and The Writers Lab to discover some of the amazing untapped talent in this region.
