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 several calls submisions for film, television drama, children's media and comedy scripts.

Following a blind judging process, selected script extracts are 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 for a new or seasoned writer include: hearing their work read by professional actors, a development focused discussion generated by the readings, feedback and advice from experienced industry members, and an invaluable method to test out new concepts and material on an audience. Visit the Rocliffe website for more information.
