Asia Society India Centre announces the launch of the Third New Voices Fellowship for Screenwriters (NVFS) 2015 - 2016 and asks contestants for scripts with a difference.

Fellowship.jpg It seeks stories that are gender sensitive, women-centric and driven by well-defined women characters. By Making Heroine the New Hero, the theme aims to expose new writers to the experience of writing from a female character’s point of view and increase the number of women-oriented scripts in the film industry.

   The programme is designed to identify, encourage, mentor and support seven talented independent screenwriters in India, helping them find their own creative voices and enabling them to incubate their ideas and refine their craft.

 By working in collaboration with and taking guidance from eminent screenwriters and filmmakers, the initiative seeks to nurture the diversity of contemporary Indian writing, while providing screenwriters a platform to develop powerful, nuanced and well-crafted scripts.

NVFS invites writers from across India to submit an original story between May 1 - July 31.
