Submissions Now Open For 3rd Consecutive PLAYA Screenwriter’s Residency Award!

Playa in the spring.
The OregonMade Creative Foundation, in conjunction with Oregon Film, Northwest Film Center and PLAYA, announce the third consecutive year of a unique residency opportunity for screenwriters and filmmakers.

This program calls for proposals from screenwriters, filmmakers and related creators to work on a script/story/pitch/narrative project during an up to 2-week residency at PLAYA in Summer Lake, Oregon.

The OregonMade Screenwriter’s Residency Award is open to Oregon Resident filmmakers, screenwriters and other creative teams (no more than 3) to develop and write a narrative project with a “historic” theme that is set here in the Northwest. This “historic” theme can tell a traditional story set in the near or distant past, or it can have a new spin – something contemporary, or even imagined, based on historic events. However, the story should focus on people, cultures, traditions, events or communities that are not traditionally covered or heard from.

Award winners will receive:
A $1,000 stipend for travel and expenses.
Up to a 2 week residency at PLAYA to develop and work on their project in the south central Oregon Outback.

The residency should be used to further develop a detailed outline, complete a first draft and/or finalize an existing draft of a script in the inspirational surroundings of PLAYA. Other structures or creative processes will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

The application period opens May 3rd.
Applications will be accepted up to 5pm on Friday, June 14.
