SURVEY Screenwriters at Film Festivals

“Broadly speaking the public face of the American movie world is the movie star. In Europe it is the director. What Europe and America have in common, though, is the invisibility of the screenwriter.”
Guy Hibbert

REPORT Highlights the Need for Heightened Visibility of Screenwriters at Film Festivals

Written Into the Picture, Investigating Screenwriters’ Lack of Visibility at Film Festivals
Researched and written by Cathy John
The aim of this investigation was to scrutinise the role of screenwriters at film festivals. It was initiated by the International Affiliation of Writers Guilds (IAWG) and Federation of Screenwriters in Europe (FSE). This joint initiative arose from the 2009 World Conference of Screenwriters in Athens, where it was resolved that the vital contribution of screenwriters needs to be more fully acknowledged both within the film industry and in the public arena at large. Investigating how screenwriters were recognised at film festivals was the first step in this broader initiative.
