The London Screenwriters’ Festival features around 100 professional speakers from all aspects of the film and television business. Many have also agreed to intimate Script Chat sessions after their respective events so that you can get face time with them. New speakers are added periodically with the vast majority being confirmed late spring / early summer 2020. Get updates by signing up below.

We are now part of a supportive community of people who are all passionate about telling stories and getting them on-screen.
