What is the LSF Hybrid?

The London Screenwriters’ Festival is an annual gathering of screenwriters. WIth 1,000 attendees (split in-person and online), over 100 sessions, 150 industry expert speakers and the biggest names in film and TV, the LSF has become the premiere screenwriting event to attend. In 2021 our onstage in London and Online Hybrid festival will deliver even more opportunities to writers.

Absolute value for money. My advice would be to new attendees: take a look at the schedule and all the speakers in advance and do a bit of research."
