In this 12-week course focused on the foundational elements of writing feature screenplays, students will develop feature film ideas into treatments. Participants will join 12 online, live sessions with other screenwriters from our global community in presentations and small group breakout work, as well as one-on-one mentoring sessions to help take their ideas to the next level. Lead instructor, Academy Award nominated screenwriter Christina Lazaridi, will run several sessions designed to guide participants through the screenwriting process. Guest presentations include case studies with Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry) and Peter Sollett (Raising Victor Vargas), and writing workshops with Award-winning screenwriters Joan Tewkesbury and Bill Wheeler.
