The London Screenwriters Festival is the World's largest professional screenwriting event - a three day event running in September (Friday through Sunday) for professional screenwriters and filmmakers.


There are over one hundred sessions, with nearly two hundred industry speakers, and we expect a thousand filmmakers and writers in attendance from around the globe - the three days promise an intense networking and learning experience that is designed to educate, inspire and connect.


Over the past years we've had such names as Chris McQuarrie (Mission Impossible) Joel Schumacher (Lost Boys), Ted Tally (Silence Of The Lambs), Tim Bevan, Mike Leigh, Frank Spotnitz (Writer/Director - X-Files, Hunted), David Yates (Director - Harry Potter and State of Play) Lisa Albert (Writer/Producer Mad Men), David Reynolds (Writer - Finding Nemo), Edgar Wright (Writer/Director - Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World), Noel Clarke (Writer - Kidulthood, Adulthood,, The Knot, Storage 24) and many more, attend our event.

When: September 2nd to 4th (with party on 1st)

Where: Regents University

How much: $500 (or $175 in 3 monthly installments. First payment due July 7th.)

‘It really was an incredible and life-changing event. It's such a long and busy few days but adrenaline and inspirations just drove me!'

Mark Freeney, Screenwriter


‘As an Screenwriter, I loved feeling ‘part of something.' To meet people, who understood how hard, frustrating, exhilarating and consuming the creative process is, because they all go through the same emotions as you. I cannot say enough good things about the amazing staff and volunteers and the speakers were wonderful, informative and approachable. I can honestly say that I am a changed person. Thank you!'
