Before you even type “INT. KITCHEN – DAY” or “Treatment”, you must know the story you’re telling and why it’s important to tell. ‪#‎YEGFILM‬ is launching Writing Academy, a series of day-long, intensive, and comprehensive sessions to help new and established screenwriters develop, refine, and finalize their screenplays and storytelling skills. The sessions will not be about technical advice that can easily be found online or in books, but instead focus on improving creative thinking, peer review skills, and passing on knowledge based on experience.

Our first session will be Conception and Storytelling, when we learn how to conceive of a valuable story and how to tell it in a way others will understand.
