Hello, film and TV scriptwriters – the SAG Foundation would like to hear from you!

The SAG Foundation Salon presents staged readings of film and TV scripts, featuring a cast of SAG-AFTRA members.

They’re interested in well-written material that would appeal to a wide audience.

Writers MUST be members of one of the performing arts (SAG-AFTRA, AEA, etc.) or affiliated unions (DGA, WGA, etc.). If the work is a collaboration, then at least one of the writers must be a union member.
