Calling all Screenwriters! CaribbeanTales hosting – “Script2Screen 2012 – Screenwriting Clinic.”
CaribbeanTales 2012 @ Island Inn, in collaboration with the National Cultural Foundation and the Bridgetown Film Academy, announces the 3rd annual “Script2Screen” Screenplay reading series.
In 2010 Script2Screen hosted a workshop reading of acclaimed novellist Oonya Kempadoo‘s screenplay TIDE RUNNING based on her award winning novel of the same name, and directed by US-based Jamaican film director Karen Williams.
In 2011, CaribbeanTales and Caribbean Island Film hosted readings of 3 short original scripts from the GROWING UP CARIBBEAN series of films produced by Penny Hynam and Beatrice Hallenbarter, and directed by filmmakers Alison Saunders, Penny Hynam and Maharaki.
This year Script2Screen will take the form of a Screenwriting Clinic, aimed at improving the skills of emerging screen writers. Three short scripts will be selected and directors assigned to each one. Scripts will be performed by local actors. Following the readings the scripts will be critiqued by a panel of experts, and writers benefit from rigorous and constructive feedback from the audience.
The “Script2Screen 2012: Screenwriting Clinic” will take place on Friday 13 April 2012 at the Island Inn Hotel from 7:00pm, and aims to help emerging writers develop an understanding of writing skills, and to offer new insights into the craft of screenwriting.
