All events are free, but any contribution is appreciated will go towards supporting NWFF during our closure.
Duration: 1h
Instructor: Vivian Hua


Northwest Film Forum presents Open Script Read [Online], meeting weekly on Monday mornings and facilitated by NWFF Executive Director Vivian Hua! 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 this page!

For the first half-hour, participants will hear a live table read and receive feedback from other writers. The remaining half hour will be allow other writers to share details about projects they’re working on, as well as look to one another for advice and collaboration. All are encouraged to attend, even if your script is not being read.

With Open Script Read, we hope to provide a nurturing, participatory environment for budding and seasoned filmmakers to support one another in the ongoing practice of screenwriting. In this difficult time, it is a way to provide virtual community that we hope will extend to future in-person sessions once NWFF resumes regular activities.

This is a sliding-scale, pay-what-you-can weekly virtual event! Registrants will receive a Zoom meeting invite one hour before the scheduled event, and you only need to RSVP for one session to gain access to all future sessions. You may opt out at any time.

Submit your script via the form at the bottom of this page! Everyone is encouraged to attend, even if your script is not being read.

Please also consider our weekly meetup for filmmakers, The Get Together.
