“Annual National Screenwriting Workshop by Anjum Rajabali”
What: Screenwriting has been in the news for all the right reasons. So many “Non-Star” films did wonders, purely because they had good scripts. (Moreover, big ones with weak writing tanked.) Powered by good writing, web series are roaring away.
Cinestaan Script Contest gave away Rs, 50 Lakh in cash prizes to their top scripts. And, above all, the quest for good scripts by producers has gone into overdrive!
Imperative then, that all aspiring, new and practicing screenwriters learn, upgrade and polish their craft, respectively. This workshop, led by an experienced teacher, joined by some really wonderful screenwriters, is designed precisely with these aims.
