The Pacific Screenwriting Program (PSP) is a not-for-profit organization aimed at building a vibrant screenwriter community in British Columbia by providing a training ground for BC’s aspiring and active screenwriters. We invite you to join our team.
We believe that building this community is an essential first step to:
1. Creating locally owned and controlled IP that can be exported to global markets
2. Increasing the province’s ability to train and to retain talented screenwriters
3. Ensuring that BC’s diverse voices are represented on screens at home and around the world
Combining real-world story-room experience, mentorship, bootcamps, workshops and information sessions, the PSP equips writers with the skills, experience, and connections necessary to establish a sustainable career in the province’s dynamic screen industry.
