Cheltenham Screenwriters' Festival

The Cheltenham Screenwriters' Festival (27-30 June) has announced Film Four as its major sponsor.
"We all know that there can be no great film without great writing", says Heather Rabbatts, education advisor to Channel 4 and board member of The Film Council. "Developing good writing skills is of fundamental importance to this industry and so it is fantastic news that for the first time ever we have a Festival dedicated to the art of screenwriting. This Festival will not only help to develop that key talent, but will also help to support writing in the future."

New Writers Day has confirmed speakers including Oscar winner Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park), new writer / director Dan Reed (Straight Heads) on Surviving Your First Feature, agents Mathew Bates & Julian Friedmann, and comedy legends Laurence Marks & Maurice Grans (Bird of A Feather, News Statesman, Nightingales).
