ABOUT INEVITABLE FOUNDATION
Inevitable Foundation is a non-profit that’s funding and mentoring professional disabled screenwriters. Our goal is to close the disability representation gap in film/TV: Disabled people make up 20%+ of the population but represent only 2% of characters on screen and less than 1% of writers behind the screen. The lack of representation on-screen is directly linked to the lack of representation off-screen. If we empower disabled screenwriters and increase the number of them working in the industry, they will naturally create a bounty of opportunities for disabled actors to portray disabled characters, which will unleash authentic disability narratives across film and television.

Our Screenwriting Fellowship gives disabled screenwriters $25,000, bespoke mentorship and a range of connections to develop their own work and build thriving careers.
