The BIPOC Writers Fellowship Semi-Finalists Announced

The Writers Room 5050 in partnership with Level 4 Press is proud to introduce its 12-week adaptation lab: Adapting Books for the Screen. The Level 4 Press catalogue and vast IP library, spanning various genres, is providing the books to be adapted for the screen.

The fellowship will focus on adapting a book into a screenplay, the release of fictional feature films for theatrical, streaming, and television movies-of-the-week (MOWs). In the process, BIPOC writers will learn the highest industry standards for developing, writing, financing and producing an adapted feature film project. Each fellow will adapt one Level 4 Press book of their choosing into a feature film screenplay.

The Writers Room 5050 and Level 4 Press are working with top executives, writers, representatives and guest speakers to provide mentorship, feedback, and firsthand industry knowledge. Executives and reps from Anthony Hemingway Productions, CAA, NBC/Universal, among others.

Congratulations to the Semi-Finalists of the BIPOC Writers Fellowship! The competition was extremely competitive.
