The CineStory Foundation has always believed in helping writers find their voice. We’re entering a world in which the ways to tell stories are limitless.  Those stories always begin with a blank page. Our goal with the TV/Digital Series Retreat is to assist writers, whether they long for the collaborative nature of Television or they dream of going out on their own to create their own web series.

Structured like the CineStory Feature Retreat, the CineStory TV/Digital Series Retreat will take place over three days in the beautiful mountains of Idyllwild, California. Attendees will receive three one-on-one, one and a half hour sessions with CineStory mentors during which they can discuss everything from the project they submitted for feedback to jump starting their writing careers. 

TV Writers will experience what it’s like to sit in a professional writers room run by an experienced mentor.  Digital Series will attend panels to discuss the best way to produce their projects.  In addition, mentors and writers will gather for meals, drinks, screenings and other special events.
