A STERLING OPPURTUNITY FOR FRESH AND MID-CAREER WRITERS KARACHI FILM SOCIETY TO HOLD SCREENWRITING WORKSHOPS CONDUCTED BY ASHWINI MALIK



Karachi, October 30, 2018: Pakistan International Film Festival under the banner of Karachi Film Society is all set to host hands-on intensive screen writing workshops here in the metropolitan city from November 3 to 6, 2018 and November 8 to 10, 2018 for fresh and mid-career writers. The workshops will be conducted by the renowned Indian screenwriting teacher, screenwriter, script consultant and an independent filmmaker Ashwini Malik.
Film is a highly collaborative medium and undoubtedly the most vital part of a film is the screenplay, which is the key to any film’s box office success. Globally, screenwriter’s role in film making is considered as important as that of the director. Keeping in mind the dire need to develop and train local screenwriting resources, KFS has developed this intensive screenwriting workshops. The workshop for fresh writers is developed in two stages. The first stage is to impart the essential principles of the art and craft of screenwriting to the participants, and later they will be tasked to develop a screenplay under mentorship during the workshop. Workshop for mid-career writers is devised to aid writers through in-depth revision of the basics of screenwriting and brush up the essential principles of the art and craft. Writers often tend to get so involved in the business of writing that they are left with little or no time to revisit the craft that they have learnt, and are thus employing every day to create stories and scripts. This workshop will help them refresh their minds, replenish their resources and update their skills.
The workshops will also discuss the uniqueness of storytelling in the subcontinent and how Indian and Pakistani films are different in their approach from the Western models.
