PEI Screenwriters’ Bootcamp

Application Deadline: April 3, 2017

Workshop Dates: June 3 – 7, 2017

Training Opportunities for Producers and Screenwriters.

This coming June, the Island Media Arts Coop (IMAC) will be hosting the eleventh PEI Screenwriters’ Bootcamp, a professional development workshop series for emerging screenwriters and producers from Atlantic Canada. These writers and producers will participate in five days of intensive professional development and be part of networking activities with producers and broadcasters in search of their next big production of feature films, documentaries, web and television drama.

The organizers are excited to welcome for the first time Deb Patz, author of Production Management 101 to mentor emerging producers. Returning mentors Tom Shoebridge, Sharon Buckingham, and Hannah Cheesman will be working with screenwriters again this year. In total, there are four workshops on offer that cover writing a feature from an idea, writing a next draft for a feature, writing a dramatic series, and production management. As an added bonus, Jan Miller will work her magic with the participants, preparing them for pitching and moving their projects forward.

With the support of Telefilm Canada, Innovation PEI, the Independent Production Fund, the Harold Greenberg Fund, and the City of Charlottetown, IMAC is able to offer these workshops at no charge to the talented individuals invited to participate.

• Writers are required to submit an application that outlines their idea and showcases their writing abilities.

• Emerging producers are required to make a case for being selected to participate in the production management workshops.
Details are outlined in the guidelines available on our web site: or you can contact Louise Lalonde at 902 213-7684.
The event takes place from June 3 to 7, 2017 and the deadline for submissions is April 3, 2017. There are no application fees or workshop fees, and this is a competition with limited seats.
We’re in this to help make your dreams of success come true!
