November's TST is a mini workshop: a unique opportunity for filmmakers to pick up some directing advice and hone their skill set, a chance to work out your style as a director, get constructive criticism, and flex your muscle. Filmmakers present a scene with two actors they've rehearsed. We'll discuss the scene and give feedback. There are three scripts to choose from: Bridesmaids, All About Eve, Cold Mountain. Directors, choose the movie and assemble your actors.

3 groups of 3 (1 director, 2 actors) will be chosen to present a scene to an audience of their peers. Please fill out the form below and you will receive an email with further instructions and the selected sides from the film you've chosen.

How to participate:

1) Sign up a group here»

2) Come and join the audience, watch the action and give feedback. Also, have some wine and talk about the scenes!

The Second Tuesday events are entertaining, educational, provocative, and fun. TST is open to members of all levels, both men and women. Entry for all paid members of Women in Film Seattle is free; cost for guests or the general public is $6. Donations to the WIF kitty jar for wine and nibbles are always appreciated.
