The programme is filled with lecturers from the College’s Faculty of Creative Arts & Screen Media along with lots more industry talent and professionals. Although industry focussed, the festival is open to all whether you’re a professional screenwriter, a newcomer breaking into the industry with a hot new screenplay or just an avid movie-goer with a keen interest in the screenwriting which makes your favourite movies great.

All events are free of charge, with online events scheduled at lunchtime and in the evening via Zoom to be as accessible as possible.
