The Louis B. Mayer Library, AFI Conservatory Screenwriting faculty and the Office of Alumni Relations are pleased to announce a new library program: The Alumni Script Reading Series. The series gives AFI Conservatory alumni from all disciplines the opportunity to submit a screenplay to be read with professional actors and receive constructive feedback from others in the artistic community.

Submission Criteria: AFI Conservatory alumni may submit one (1) screenplay each for consideration. Submissions should be one of the following: a) a feature-length script (of no more than 110 pages); b) a 60-minute TV pilot; or c) a 30-minute TV pilot and one episode. A one-page story synopsis and a 10-page sample of the script must be included with all submissions. All scripts must be unsold and completed after graduation from the Conservatory. Co-authorship by an AFI alumnus/a is required for any script that involves non-alumni writing collaboration. Submissions will be ongoing and only one submission per year per alumnus/a will be considered.
All submissions should be sent electronically to Robert Vaughn, AFI Conservatory Librarian, at LibraryProgramming@AFI.com. A representative of the Selection Committee will notify the writer of the chosen script for each event. Writers will be asked to bring an audience questionnaire for the Q&A.
