In Conversation with screenwriter and script editor Keith Thompson


Script to Screen, the NZ Film Archive and the NZ Film Commission present an evening with award-winning Australian screenwriter and script editor Keith Thompson (The Sapphires) in conversation with script editor and acting/directing coach Brita McVeigh.

How do you get the best results from collaboration when writing a script? What's the best way for a team to engage in the development process? What's the most productive approach to co-writing and working with directors? Join us for an exploration of these and other questions in an event aimed at writers and their collaborators, including directors, producers and developers.

Come early for a glass of wine and stay afterward for a slice of Heaven Pizza.

Drinks 5:30, 6pm start, Wed 21st August, The Film Archive, 88 Taranaki Street, Wellington, $5 koha appreciated.
