Objective

The ISA Fast Track Fellowship gives two undiscovered screenwriters a direct line to be mentored by eight top level agents, managers, producers and executives during a week of meetings. After the Fast Track Week, the fellows will automatically be accepted onto the ISA Development Slate where the ISA and our Director of Development will champion you and your script to industry contacts for a full year!

We're excited to announce that we've expanded the fellowship to award finalists in seven genres, all of which will receive $500 cash each. The seven Genre Finalists will then be evaluated for acceptance onto the ISA Development Slate and go on to be considered for the two Fast Track Fellows..

All are welcome to apply! Our mission as always is to shine a light on the best undiscovered writers in the world with a special focus on talented writers that are typically underrepresented in the industry. Show More
