Second Rounders Roundtable: The Art, Craft, and Business of Film and Television

Get in-depth answers to your questions about the art, craft, and business of screenwriting. This session offers Second Rounds from the Screenplay Competition exclusive access to writers, executives, studio reps, agents, managers, producers, and attorneys in an informal setting. Take advantage of this invaluable opportunity to ask those burning questions: What’s the best way to overcome writer’s block? Or risk taking a new direction after established success? How do I find representation? Are studios buying spec scripts? What are emerging trends in the industry? Don’t miss your chance to ask all this and more without being charged by the hour or forgoing a percentage of your script sale.

*This roundtable is open to Second Rounders only.

Roundtables required advance sign-up through the Screenplay Department.

Second Rounders and Above Panel: Mock Writers Room

Tawnya Benavides-Bhattacharya (writer/co-executive producer Ginny & Georgia) ) will discuss the inner-workings of what to expect in a writers room: the etiquette, expectations, format, and anatomy of the writers room. Join her and pre-selected Second Rounders for an interactive workshop on how to break a story.

This panel is open to Second Rounders and Above.
