Asia Society India Centre has launched the New Voices Fellowship for Screenwriters (NVFS), a programme to identify and support a group of six talented independent screenwriters to develop their feature film scripts by working in a dynamic and innovative environment with guidance from eminent filmmakers and screenwriters

The project will have two phases. Through an open application process, 12 writers will be selected to attend the first workshop to be held in November 2011. At the end of the workshop, six writers will be invited to continue on in an eight-month fellowship that will provide a focused platform to explore their work and ideas more fully. A second workshop will be held in spring 2012 (Dates TBC) and the fellowship will end in August 2012. The project’s structure has been created by a group of advisors and mentors.
