ABOUT FROM SCRIPT TO PRE-PRODUCTION
In 2015 we launched From Script to Pre-Production (FS2P) because women filmmakers were grossly underrepresented in the world of narrative film and faced enormous hurdles when trying to make the jump to features. While this leaves the market under-served, audiences deprived and women filmmakers frustrated, the real problem is that women’s voices are left out of the culture. The lab is a practical solution to solve this issue. The idea was to collect a group of women filmmakers and work together on all the skills, tools and connections needed to launch our features. With the support of New York Women in Film & Television, Entertainment Partners & Light Iron, FS2P was born and in the move to virtual space as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic is thriving more than ever with participants from around the world.
