The goal for each writer is to leave the program with developed writing skills, including at least one producible feature script that champions your idea to make a new web sketch.
To apply, you are required to submit your script on given theme. The length of script should be 5 to 15 pages in Courier Font Size 12, PDF format. Shortlisted applicants will need to appear for One Day Workshop followed by one on one discussion/interview either in person.
Shortlisted writers will be mentored by FilterCopy's team of experienced writers and creators. Post that, the winners will be put up in Mumbai (if outstation) and paid appropriately for their work. Most importantly, FilterCopy will make one or more videos with the final winner.
Regardless of the final language of the sketch, the script (including dialogues) should be in Hindi, English or Hinglish only.
The idea behind the Web Writers’ Lab is to help writers improve their draft script and turn into a screenplay with inputs from industry mentors. The writers will be taken through a formal process of scriptwriting, to ensure that the outcoming scripts are producable videos.
The writer whose script has been selected to be made into a video will receive a standard fee for their script
The rights of your script completely remain with you. The lab is just a process and does not own any part of your creative work.
All communication regarding the lab will be sent via email only on writer's registered email ID.

Yes, however each project must be applied with separate applications forms and only one project per writer will be selected.
Shortlisted writers will be informed by 10th January 2018 via email and phone. These are tentative dates we may update them as when required.
Due to the large number of applications received, we will not be able to provide individual feedback or reasons to rejected applicants.
The three tier AC travel reimbursement amount will be decided solely at the discretion of IFP, based on Indian Railways estimates of train fare from the city of applicant’s current residence to Mumbai. Selected participants are advised to check with the Web Writers’ Lab team regarding applicable amounts before finalizing their travel plans.
Beyond the application fee, there is no other cost or tuition fees to participate in Web Writers' lab.
Age is just a number for us. We judge you with your writing ability.
