TSAFF 2019- Film Day Symposium
Day 1- SCREENWRITING DECONSTRUCTED
Screenwriter Gazal Dhaliwal (Lipstick Under My Burkha, Qarib Qarib Singlle, and Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga) will talk about what goes into crafting a screenplay that tells a good story, and is entertaining. The films she has written carry layered social commentary while also being commercially viable and entertaining.
In this unique, interactive workshop, Gazal will talk about her journey as a writer and how her life and experiences have influenced the stories she writes. Then, she will deconstruct a few selected scenes from films she’s written for, breaking down the writing process, and the progression from page to screen. This workshop is great for filmmakers and writers who want to learn from an experienced screenwriter, as well as for film enthusiasts who are curious about what goes into writing a film script. Moderated by Pulkit Datta.
Film Day consists of panels and information curated for budding filmmakers and storytellers. What do you need to have in place in order to make your movie? How much can you prepare on your own as a filmmaker? Who do you need on your team? Come join us for this panel of creatives and curators to find out what it takes to have your work seen! Panelists include local and visiting directors, producers and programmers who’ll speak of their experiences and expertise.
The Film Day Symposium is funded by Seattle Department of Neighborhoods.
