The BAFTA Rocliffe New Writing Forum is a platform for aspiring screenwriters to have their work performed and a fantastic opportunity to take their writing career to the next level.
Each year, the BAFTA Rocliffe New Writing Forum holds severals calls for film and television script extract submissions. The selected extracts are then performed by a professional cast to an audience of producers, development executives, directors, actors and literary agents. In recent years, winning finalists have seen their work performed at the New York Television Festival and the Edinburgh Television Festival.
The benefits to a writer, new or seasoned, are multiple: hearing their work read by professional actors; a development focused discussion generated by the readings; exposure to and advice from experienced industry members; feedback from an audience and an invaluable method to test out new concepts and material.
