Workshop: Screenwriting Skills At Mumbai Film Festival

Friday, October 11, 2013


Do you want to pick up some screenwriting skills but don’t have time to enroll in a full-time class? This workshop is a great place to get started. The 15th Mumbai Film Festival is finally here and in association with Equinox Europe, they’re conducting a two-day workshop this month in Andheri. The workshop will be conducted by the Chair of the Melbourne International Film Festival along with eminent script advisor, Claire Dobbin and producer and screenwriter James Hart.
While Claire has been a guest lecturer at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival and senior script executive at the Australian Film Commission, Hart has written and produced Hook, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Muppet Treasure Island, Jack and the Beanstalk: The Real Story and Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life.
Activities include listening to pitches, giving your own and getting feedback. There’s a lunch break in between and sessions will discuss themes, concept lines, structure and characters, along with a question hour to air doubts. On the second day, you can watch a screening of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, with a deconstruction of the script. You can pitch ideas at the end again.

Srinivasan Narayana, festival director, Mumbai Film Festival says, “There is a need to groom and hone skills, learnt as well as inherent, to ensure excellence. This is true for script writing and pitching as well. James V Hart and Claire Dobbin are masters in this field. At this workshop, they will share their knowledge and experiences with young script writers and participants. We are developing Mumbai Film Festival as a platform for knowledge sharing, networking and celebrating cinema as a whole.”
