March 1-5, 2017   |   At Whistling Woods International, Mumbai.

2016 can be called the year of the Indian screenwriter! With a slew of films powered by some scintillating scripts blazing new trails, the scramble for good scripts gets a shot in the arm. Writers’ visions seem to be driving storytelling in the Hindi film industry.

Those who were part of this trail-blazing year are happy to share their knowledge, experience and guidance, via interactive masterclasses in the workshop!

With the aid of new examples, references and illustrations, the Workshop Instructor will cover all the useful principles of screenwriting, the navrasa theory, Indian mythology, copyright law, writers’ contracts, and offer professional guidance.
