Coming Up

There are currently no upcoming Short Film Screenwriting Intensive classes but do check back soon.

Write a completed short film script in just five days! Learn from Tropfest winner and Palme d’Or nominee Jonathan Ogilvie and inspiring guest speakers how to take your stories from initial idea through treatment and draft stage, to a finished, polished script ready to be pitched. Story structure, theme, character, roadblocks, arcs, tension, conflict and resolution will be explored as they are used in filmmaking through fast paced lectures and workshops.

"A thoughtfully constructed course with brilliant, knowledgeable tutors…I learned a lot."

Monday 8 - Friday 12 January 2018
