The American Film Institute Directing Workshop for Women will host a workshop titled "Crafting a Short: How to Find Your Story and Make It a Movie" at the 2013 Athena Film Festival: A Celebration of Women and Leadership. 

The workshop, which will take place on Feb. 8, 2013, 10 am-1 pm, at Barnard College in NYC, is accepting a maximum of 24 participants. Applications are open to women filmmakers (writers, directors, producers) of all levels that have a short film idea that they would like to develop into a script. (Three spaces will be reserved for Barnard students.)



Apply here.

Applications are due by midnight on Dec. 15, 2012. Selected participants will be notified in mid-Jan. 2013. There is no cost for the workshop. 

The AFI Directing Workshop for Women has been a major force in training women in narrative filmmaking since 1974. Over 250 women have been given the opportunity to participate in the innovative, unique and tuition-free training program for tomorrow's directors.

A celebration of women and leadership, the Athena Film Festival is an engaging weekend of feature films, documentaries and shorts that highlight women’s leadership in real life and the fictional world. Conversations with directors and Hollywood stars. Workshops for filmmakers. Sold-out audiences and industry buzz. All at the most sought-after women’s college in the nation, in the heart of New York.
