The London Screenwriters Festival is a three day event that is designed to inspire, educate and connect. With over 100 sessions delivered by 130 industry leaders, the festival has fast become the must attend event of the year for screenwriters, filmmakers and storytellers.What else can you expect at the festival?
- Amazing Speakers: Learn From Those Who Have Done It
We will have around 130 world class speakers at the festival this year, with the first 50 or so already announced, including the talent behind ‘Prime Suspect’. ‘Finding Nemo’, ‘Southcliffe’, ‘Utopia’, ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’… Plus, we have more big names to announce in the coming month.
- Even more amazing delegates: Get super-connected
Getting access to the sessions and speakers at the festival is the number one reason people buy their first pass, but the biggest reason delegates return year on year is because of the other delegates, the community and the relationships built at the festival. Seriously, your contacts book will be expanded massively. Join the family, you will be welcomed and feel immediately at home. http://tinyurl.com/delegates-lsf14
- The Great British Pitchfest at the LSF: PITCH PITCH PITCH!!!
Getting your project into the hands of a person who can ACTUALLY get it made means you are going to need to pitch it at some point. It’s how the business works. And nowhere offers more focussed pitching to UK, European and Hollywood execs in London that at the Screenwriters’ Festival. This year you can expect more people to pitch, more slots and MORE possibilities.
PS – Don’t forget Pitching Thursday with Pilar Alessandra.
- Total Immersion… Three days immersed in the thing we all love: storytelling!
It’s impossible to describe why total immersion is so essential to the creative mind as it’s such a visceral and emotional experience. For three days, it’s like the lunatics are running the asylum. Real life gets left behind and a new and wonderful world filled with like minded people fizzles with possibilities. Being there and being part of it is not the same as reading about it, or Tweeting it. Join us and get immersed in your own possibilities all over again.
- Online Delegate Networking
We have an active delegate area online where you can connect with other delegates right now. Plus this is where we share all the sessions we have filmed at past festivals (currently running at around 150 screenwriting and filmmaking seminars and masterclasses in both HD and audio podcast). We will film most of the sessions at the festival in October too so you can catch up on any you miss.
Plus… Get feedback from the lovely Euroscript Script Doctors who will read your screenplay, meet speakers face to face at Script Shats so you can take the conversation further, add your details to the Talent Directory that we circulate to all speakers and execs in attendance… And more…
Seriously, the whole event will blow your mind. That’s why so many people come year on year and why the event is growing 30% in scale annually. Plus we have some VERY cool initiatives still to announce.
We will sell out this year.
We sold out around four weeks before the festival last year and this year is likely to be even sooner. So please, please, please take action if you want to come.
OK go get your pass here…
Onwards and upwards!
