iW NEWS | Hamptons To Host Screenwriter's Lab

The Hamptons International Film Festival will host its 8th annual Screenwirters’ Lab May 9-11, 2008, in East Hampton. Co-sponsored by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the event will allow emerging screenwriters to work with mentors who will advise them on revising their scripts in preparation for production. “The Screenwriters’ Lab consistently provides one of the most exciting and fulfilling aspects of the Hamptons’ year-round activities,” said Director of Programming David Nugent in a statement. The fest announced the lab’s participants: Alex R. Johnson with “La Sobrina,” James Ponsoldt with “Refresh, Refresh,” Bradford Tatum with “Book of Water,” and Avi Weider with “Zeroes and Ones.” They will be mentored by Maria Maggneti, Ira Sachs, Jeffrey Sharp and Whit Stillman.
