What is the LSF?

The London Screenwriters’ Festival is an annual gathering of emerging and established screenwriters. With over 1,000 attendees, 100 sessions, 150 industry expert speakers and the biggest names in film and TV (from both the UK and Hollywood), the LSF has become the premiere screenwriting event to attend. Full guide and breakdown of the festival HERE.

Great sessions, direct contact with industry heavyweights, fellow professionals and newcomers, a great venue, a terrific online network…

Santa_scooter-300x213 Saturday December 13th 2014, 6:30pm till 11:00pm // Venue: The Phoenix Artists Club

Join the whole LSF team for a Christmas celebration and of course a networking catch up! The venue is our old haunt, The Phoenix Artists Club, right in the heart of the West End. Tickets are £3.00 including VAT to help cover the cost of room rental. Kick off is nice and early at 6:30pm, and the wrap up will be around 11:00pm. We hope to see you there! Do your Xmas shopping in the West End then wrap up the day with your new LSF friends over a drink.

If I hadn’t come to the festival I wouldn’t have improved as a writer, got an agent, and now I have a meeting at Hollyoaks about writing the show!
