The TOP 25 and ISA Development Slate were designed to promote and congratulate ISAConnect members who have proven themselves to be noticeably hardworking and dedicated to carving a career with a strong foundation. These chosen writers have gone above and beyond to grow, improve, and get noticed, smashing their goals and achieving incredible success in the past year. Highlights include having a short film selected and presented at the Cannes International FiIm Festival, receiving an Oscar nomination, placing as a Grand Prize winner in a contest, and chosen as a Fellowship writer. Many have also landed multiple paid writing assignments or procured representation at major agencies and management companies.
The Top 25 have shown what can be achieved with dedication to their craft and career, and this, alongside their recent success stories, is why they were chosen. These writers continue to take the initiative to attend meetings around town, submit to and win contests, set up projects with producers and production companies, and produce their own content, supported by the ISA Development Team.
Only ISAConnect Members are included here. If you're an industry pro and interested in viewing the work of these emerging screenwriters, please request Industry Pro status.
