| IFA is endeavoring to provide
the right kind of training to the right people, and its pioneering
attempt is to launch a systematic knowledge series on film script
writing through a Workshop, which is carefully planned to introduce
aspiring script writers to all aspects of scriptwriting.
To be held in November, 2005, this 8
day workshop will be conducted on 4 weekends
(Saturdays and Sundays), from 11.00am to 6.00pm.
The syllabus is designed on a very practical level. On the
faculty are not only renowned scriptwriters who will share
their knowledge and experiences, but also a producer, a director,
a cinematographer, an editor, and a sound-recordist who will
give a complete insight on their viewpoint of the 'Film Script'.
4 films will be screened during the course, and thrown open
for discussion from the scriptwriter's point of view. Along
with this a few more short films and clippings from various
films will also be screened under the topics of syllabus.
