Fall 2019 season applications for NYC are open!  Applications are due by August 5, and our season begins the week of September 3 (after Labor Day).

We will be hosting a pre-season Open House event for prospective new members in late July. Stay tuned for details.

**For Filmshop NOLA applications, please 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
