I'm heading down to London today for the LSF  - http://londonscreenwritersfestival.com/ - and I'll be there for the full three days. If anyone of you are planning on going, maybe we'll bump into each other and exchange hilarious anecdotes about the one week challenge or something. I dunno really, it just occurred to me that some of you may be going so if you are, give us a shout!

Omg that was amazing! Guys, you've got to go to this next year. You've got to, it's like a life changing event...really! There was writers from all over the UK plus from the US, Bejing, Poland...from everywhere there! Plus execs, producers, agents. I got to watch Die Hard with the writer Jeb Stuart FFS, while he talked about it. Amazing!

Get a ticket for 2018. They will go in sale soon at an early bird discount and you can spread payments monthly. Do it!!

In fact, I've just bought a ticket for next year! if you buy within the next two weeks it's on special offer. It may seem like a lot (and I realise it is) but this is almost £100 less than the full price will be.

Hey, sorry about bumping this and I promise I'm in no way affiliated with this event lol, I just love it, but the subject of getting advice from actors about scripts came up in another unrelated thread so I thought I'd highlight this again.

You can pay thousands to go to one seminar presented by someone with dubious IMDB credits (certainly not any production you've ever heard of) yet who claims to have all the answers on writing scripts.

You can pay hundreds to pitch virtually to some unknown 'exec' and never hear from them again.

The London Screenwriter's festival is three full days filled with people from every part of the business, people you've heard of and admire giving you an insight into the business, the craft and every aspect of it you can imagine. Not just in huge rooms, but in small groups as well known as 'script chat' sessions.  You can pitch as well...to named execs, producers, directors IN THE FLESH! You'll be networking with writers from all over the world who've flown to London specifically for this event.

Have a look here at the schedule for 2018 - https://www.londonscreenwritersfestival.com/whats-on/sessions/ - If you miss any session (as it is impossible to attend them all) then most are filmed and you have access to everyone ever recorded at every festival.


It may seem like a lot (and I know it is) but you can pay it in 10 monthly installments. I jump in on the first week it is on sale and the first 100 tickets are 50% off, but don't let that put you off. The next one is Spring 2020 and is the 10th anniversary. They are promising big things! I've been to two of these now and I cannot praise them enough.

For those outside the UK, I realise the cost goes up exponentially. All I can say is I meet people from all over the world at these events and they are not exactly minted either but think it is worth it.

I hope to see some of you there in 2020!

I really wanted to go.  I can literally walk to it from work.  But then I saw the ticket price.  Yikes.

I know it can seem a lot. But if you look at the sessions available, you can pay that price for one of these seminars, this is like every seminar, workshop and pitching session combined. I see folks on here and other writing groups pay out $40 for one virtual pitching session that lasts 10 mins. Yes, that may be more affordable in the short run, but does it achieve anything?

Looking at the ticket prices at the moment they seem to be offering 10-monthly payments of £19.99 if that helps.

I think it's in the ballpark of reasonable, but it's not for me right now in my screenwriting. Hard enough to convince my wife to let me spend money on a couple contest entries per year, at least until I earn any money from screenwriting.

So, anyone want to option a script for $1?

The only thing that can ever speak for you is your writing. These 'famous people' are also constantly hungry for work and hidden behind the oodles of bullshit camaraderie is an 'every man for himself' attitude.

If you're good enough, time will tell. These festivals are a business. A lot of bullshit is spoken and you get to go home feeling good about yourself. Doesn't that also happen in a pub?


Of course, this is all just my opinion based on my experience of the industry thus far. I have never been to one of these festivals, obviously.
