Objective

The 2017 Orb Media China-Hollywood Screenwriting Fellowship is open for applications!

This is the first cross-cultural screenwriting mentorship program to develop writers in both English and Chinese languages. Screenwriters worldwide are encouraged to submit original feature film screenplays in English or Chinese promptly for consideration by the final application deadline on February 10th, 2017.

Orb Media Group will select four (4) winners who will each be offered an option fee of at least WGA minimum (up to $13,374) against a six-figure purchase price at WGA scale contingent on production (up to $133,739 each, depending on the final budget of each film). Orb Media Group and its partners will financially back and develop the projects for production and distribution with partners in China and the United States. Orb Media will also provide the winners with round-trip travel to the Beijing Film Festival in April 2017 to participate in special training and mentorship programs in partnership with the Beijing Film Academy.
