Ubisoft's Women's Film and Television Fellowship Gives Opportunity and Voice to Female Writers

Share with friends



There is always a need for more opportunities for female writers.

Beginning in November, Ubisoft is launching their second annual Women’s Film and Television Fellowship. The company recently awarded the recipients of last year’s fellowship, Mishna Wolff and Tasha Huo, script deals.

The fellowship selects two female screenwriters for a six-month paid fellowship. This includes access to Ubisoft’s library of content and mentors such as the directors and heads of the film division of the company. The work done in the fellowship has the potential for later collaboration between fellow and Ubisoft.

“This fellowship is about creating more opportunities for emerging female voices in film and television,” said Margaret Boykin, Director of Film Development, Ubisoft. “We’re thrilled with the program’s success and look forward to continuing the fellowship with two new participants.”

With such promising opportunities within Ubisoft, one can only assume more great projects helmed by women’s voices are on the way in film, television, and video games.
