Future Screens: Perspectives on Storytelling
presented by NI Screen & the Seamus Heaney Centre at Queen's
Film-makers and fiction writers alike aim to tell a story — but what do film and fiction have in common as forms of narrative, how do they differ and what can they learn from one another? In this workshop we will explore these questions by making the comparison between the two forms. By analyzing examples from novels, short stories and other forms of narrative on the page, we’ll share knowledge, find new perspectives on participants’ experience of telling stories on film, and consider how the tools and techniques of fiction-writing might inform what film storytellers do. Each workshop will feature a guest speaker from another creative field, including literary fiction, children’s literature and theatre, who will help us to expand our discussion of storytelling further.
Workshops will be held as virtual workshops by video conference.
They are open to participants with any professional background in film, with a focus on the following four areas: higher-budget feature film, lower-budget feature film, TV series, documentary film.
