Study type Taught


This course is aimed at developing screenwriting skills in the context of a filmmaking community where writing is an everyday practice and a collaborative process involving actors, directors, musicians, editors and producers. The school explores the boundaries between writing and directing and stimulates debate through classes in film history, crosscultural approaches to dramaturgy and script readings with professional actors. Regular screenings of classic and contemporary films in the school’s own film theatre and visits by contemporary filmmakers complement the core practical work of developing a feature screenplay. The programme provides a year of critical and creative development, a network of future contacts and a space where a writer can define their interests and particular talent. This is a course that is more interested in content over structure, individual development over the imposition of a universal model or set of rules.
