Are you a first-time filmmaker ready to share your story?

The Antigravity Academy Screenwriters Camp is a program designed to help up to five emerging filmmakers (or writing teams) develop and package their first features. 

The program will be run by Abiram Brizuela, former Director of Artist Community at the Sundance Institute. It will consist of a week-long residential intensive in May, followed by five monthly virtual workshops and a month of industry exposure. Upon completion, participants will have a new draft of their screenplay, a first-look deal for production financing from Unapologetic Projects and a commitment from Antigravity Academy to help them usher their projects into the market.

Are you interested in applying?

-A finished draft of a feature screenplay is required as well as a short video introduction to the applying filmmaker (or writing team).

-Only filmmakers with no previously produced feature films will be considered.

-All applicants must be over 18 and able to attend the in-person intensive in Lake Arrowhead, CA from Friday, May 24th-Wednesday, May 29th 2024.

-All travel and lodging expenses will be covered by Antigravity Academy.
