Episodic Comedy Colony


Our annual Episodic Comedy Colony, in partnership with the Nantucket Film Festival, takes place in June at Almanack Arts Colony. This collaboration provides four emerging episodic comedy writers with an immersive, all-expense paid residency and mentorship experience. As with our October Colony for feature film writers, applications for the Episodic Comedy Colony will be accepted by industry nomination only.

While on Nantucket, the selected writers will work together with our Creative Advisor, Eric Gilliland, and eminent professional industry mentors to experience the Writers' Room, hone their craft, develop pilots, and practice pitching. The Colony overlaps with the Nantucket Film Festival, allowing the writers to go from an intensive and immersive closed door experience to a public event celebrating their writing and storytelling. We open submissions for this program in late January.
