Open Script Read [Virtual or In-Person]
Our weekly Open Script Read takes place on Tuesdays from 6:30pm to 7:30pm PT.
Meetings will be hosted virtually on Zoom, with occasional in-person exceptions that will be noted below.
Open Script Read provides a nurturing, participatory environment for budding and seasoned filmmakers to support one another in the ongoing practice of screenwriting. Submit 10 pages of your work and participate in a live table-read, where participants will offer feedback to one another.
We are currently seeking new scripts and actors to read roles! Local screenwriters and filmmakers may submit 10 pages of their original work, and one script will be chosen per session.
Submit your script via the form at the bottom of the page if you’re a writer, or simply RSVP for the event if you’re an actor who wishes to participate.
All are encouraged to attend, even if your script is not being read.
Vivian Hua 華婷婷
NWFF Executive Director, Filmmaker & Facilitator
Vivian Hua (華婷婷) is a writer, filmmaker, and organizer with semi-nomadic tendencies. As the Executive Director of Northwest Film Forum in Seattle, a Co-Founder of the civil rights film series, The Seventh Art Stand, and Editor-in-Chief of the interdisciplinary arts publication, REDEFINE, much of her work unifies her metaphysical interests with her belief that art can positively transform the self and society. In 2018, she released her narrative short film, Searching Skies–which touches on the controversial topic of Syrian refugee resettlement in the United States–and in 2021, she will begin production on a comedic Asian-American series entitled Reckless Spirits. Vivian is passionate about cultural space, sustainable practices, and finding ways to covertly and overtly disrupt oppressive structures. Learn more at vivianhua.com. 🙂
