The Outfest Screenwriting Lab started as a screenwriting contest in 1997 and became the cornerstone of our education and mentoring program, Outfest Forward. Twenty years later, this program has become an intensive three-day lab where industry professionals mentor the next generation of screenwriters. After the lab, these writers work with experienced Outfest directors to present their screenplays on stage with a live reading at Outfest Los Angeles. Screenwriting Lab Fellows will continue to receive guidance from Outfest Staff and Mentors for the full calendar year.
