- Film Festival
The Philadelphia Film Society and Screenwriting Instructor, Nanci Gaglio, are excited to present the next step in our filmadelphiaEDUCATION screenwriting courses. This new workshop is designed to be interactive and motivating, which will assist and encourage students to write their stories with all of the necessary components to take them swiftly through the first act of their screenplay. Topics and exercises include how to generate a wealth of story ideas, 3-act structure, character arcs. The workshop is driven by the basic fundamentals, and covers genre, structure building, dialogue, how to write moving pictures and much more. This course makes writing FUN and promises to inspire those who have a movie in their minds, but need to get it on the page, as it simplifies what is normally a difficult process.
Motivation, support, camaraderie, and feedback are inherent through the course. Be prepared to work & enjoy!
