Writing for Film

11am to 4pm @ Northern Film School

Hot on the heels of their award-winning film Polterheist, screenwriting team Dave Gilbank and Paul Renhard already have three new film projects in the pipeline, so we're thrilled they've agreed to take time out of their busy schedules to teach us what it takes to write a killer script for a cult movie!

See our workshops page for booking details.
