Sessions 2015

Sessions will be added in late Summer 2015

Over the three days of the London Screenwriters’ Festival we will run over one hundred seminars, workshops and networking events for professional screenwriters. We film most sessions, so if you miss one, or two clash, you’ll be able to catch up later online. For updates about the festival, sign up below.

From my first year last year I have seen a tangible difference in the quality of my writing. I couldn’t wait to get back and learn more.

The 2015 British Screenwriters’ Awards

It’s about time someone put the originators and architects of great storytelling front and centre. And we did in 2014, and are doing it again in 2015, just BIGGER!

You’ll leave feeling invigorated and raring to go. It’s essential that us writers get a good kick up the arse from time to time, and believe me, this festival wears one hell of a big boot…

I cannot tell you how invaluable the Actors Table Read was for me – and from feedback I’ve heard other writers too
