September is BAFTA Guru's Screenwriting Season
This month, BAFTA Guru will enter its "Screenwriting Season." An educational resource of BAFTA, BAFTA Guru is an extensive library of interviews, podcasts, and lectures featuring countless filmmakers and creatives - including many screen and television writers. The site already includes lectures from Charlie Kaufman, Abi Hoffman, and John Logan and insights from the likes of Joss Whedon, Seth Rogen, Jenni Konner, and many more.
The 2013 BAFTA Guru Screenwriting Lecture series schedule:
Sept 23 - David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, Batman Begins)
Sept 25 - Hossein Amni (Drive)
Sept 28 - Susannah Grant (Erin Brockovich)
Sept 29 - Tony Gilroy (Michael Clayton)
Sept 30 - Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral)
Tickets have all sold out for these events, but Guru will be releasing podcast audio, transcripts, and video clips in the days following each lecture.
In the meantime, you can access all of BAFTA Guru's writing content via their Screenwriting strand, including their "Big Questions" interviews, in which writers talk up what inspires them and how they got their starts in the business.
So bookmark and watch this space, as it's sure to expand its spotlight on some of the most exciting film and TV writers working today.
