SWF Approaches

9th September 2009

The 4th International Screenwriters’ Festival, takes place 26-29 October 2009 at the Cheltenham Ladies College in the English Cotswolds.

The festival will provide an opportunity for writers to connect with directors, producers, agents, development and studio execs, financiers and commissioners. It is a meeting place for screen storytellers in film and television, as well as in the fields of digital/online and gaming.

At the festival projects get picked up, new partnerships and alliances are forged and delegates are offered a menu of events that include keynote speeches, seminars, screenings, masterclasses, workshops and limitless networking opportunities with commissioning, production and agency talent.

The festival programme embraces all genres and attracts writers (both established and new), producers, directors, agents, developers, financiers and film executives. Last year saw some 600 attendees from 15 countries that included Australia, Spain, USA, Canada, France and Italy.

A 2 Day Ticket costs £246.00, and a 4 Day Ticket costs £389.00.

Also, Nicola Depuis is looking for writers with experience writing LBGT characters for film and television to take part in a symposium she is hoping to arrange at the Screenwriters Festival on the subject of writing LGBT characters for the screen. Please contact Nicola at 085-7874149 if you are attending the conference and have some background in this area.
