Tickets still available for "From First Draft to Feature"

From First Draft to Feature is the newest entry in the Writer's Guild Foundation's craft symposium, bringing a roster of pro screenwriters together for an all-day series of panels illuminating the realities and creative process of getting a feature screenplay produced. The guild usually saves this kind of event for the Austin Film Festival, but this year they're bringing the event right to LA.

Just a few of the featured writers include John August (Go, Big Fish), Kelly Marcel (Saving Mr. Banks, 50 Shades of Grey), Katie Dippold (The Heat, Parks & Rec), Kirsten "Kiwi" Smith (Legally Blonde, The Expendabelles), along with producer Ron Yerxa (Nebraska, Little Miss Sunshine) and competition directors Greg Beal (The Academy's Nicholl Fellowship) and Matt Dy (Austin Film Festival). Rumor has it there will even be some AFI admission prizes being tossed around for the audience.

The event takes place Saturday, April 12. You can find a complete listing of the day's events and guests (and grab tickets for $65) here.
