HIFF labABOUT THE HAMPTONS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL SCREENWRITERS LAB

The Hamptons International Film Festival’s Screenwriters Lab, going into its 16th year, is an intimate gathering that takes place each Spring in East Hampton, New York (April 8 -10, 2016). The Lab develops emerging screenwriting talent by pairing established writers & creative producers with up and coming screenwriters (chosen by HIFF in collaboration with key industry contacts). The mentors advise in a one on one creative laboratory setting while additional events bring the participants together with board members, sponsors, the local artistic community, and other friends of the festival. With scripts from past writers produced year after year, the Lab continues to be an inspiring and safe place for artists to find and hone their creative vision. A number of recent projects in the Lab have gone on to be produced and distributed and to screen at festivals around the world such as Sundance, South by Southwest, Karlovy Vary, Locarno and the Los Angeles Film Festival. Selected highlights include Short Term 12 with Brie Larson and John Gallagher , which won the Grand Jury and Audience Award at SXSW, The Discoverers starring Griffin Dunne , Little Accidents featuring Elizabeth Banks and Chloe Sevigny , Fort Bliss starring Michelle Monaghan & Ron Livingston , and 2010 Sundance Film Festival Closing Night film Twelve starring Ellen Barkin and Emma Roberts .
