BENNETT MILLER, RY RUSSO-YOUNG, JONATHAN AMES TO APPEAR AT IFP’S “SCRIPT TO SCREEN”
The IFP’s popular conference for writers and writer/directors, Script to Screen, returns to the 92nd St. Y Tribeca on Saturday, March 17 with a program that promises to mix practical advice with freewheeling programs intended to generate creative sparks.
The day’s program features a keynote presentation by Bennett Miller, the Oscar-nominated director of Moneyball and Capote, and a Screenwriter’s Roundtable featuring up-and-coming auteurs Ry Russo-Young (Nobody Walks), Leslye Headland (Bachelorette), Madeline Olnek (Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same) and Liza Johnson (Return).
As a promising change of pace from traditional panels, Script to Screen also features a pair of interactive events. Opening day will be a creative writing game led by comedians Ethan T. Berlin and Eric Bryant, the creators of IFC’s new comedy game show Bunk. Later, novelist and Bored to Death creator Jonathan Ames will stage a version of the Surrealist “Exquisite Corpse” game. Ames will perform and analyze a screenplay written live earlier in the day by the attending writers.
There will be other panels, of course, as well as a pitch session of select crowd-sourced projects. It should be a great event, and I hope to see some of you there. Tickets are $90 for IFP members and $110 for non-members. Lunch is included.
