Fall 2019 applications are now closed! Applications for the Spring 2020 season will open by December 2019. Stay tuned!

If you are interested in learning more about our directing actors workshop, the Sandbox, please click here. [Note: The Sandbox is on hiatus as of Fall 2019 but will return in 2020.]

If you are interested in applying to the New Orleans chapter, click here.

Before you apply, please note:

  • We ask that you be actively working on a project you’d like to workshop with the group. (Questions about what this means? See the Current Work section of the application below, or read more here.)

  • Dues for the season are $175. We don't want concerns about money to keep you from applying. We offer a few slots at a discount for those who are unemployed or underemployed; priority is given to artists from communities that are underrepresented in the industry. If you are interested in applying for discounted fees, reach out to us.

  • For the second round of the application process, strong applicants may be asked to speak with a current Filmshop member, either at our pre-season open house, or via a phone or Skype call.

  • Filmshop members are expected to miss no more than 4 meetings per season (this means they must attend 11 out of 15 of their chapter's weekly meetings). Meetings take place on weeknights, 7:30 to 10:00.

We look forward to learning more about you!

If you have any questions, or would like to schedule a visit to one of our workshop meetings, feel free to email us at
