PEI Screenwriters’ Bootcamp starts tomorrow and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Louise Lalonde has done it again! For the 11th year in a row Bootcamp is bringing in top writers from Canada and the US to help dozens of Atlantic region writers in various stages in their careers get their stories honed for the big and little screen. And this year we have Deb Patz, production manager extraordinaire, with us running a Production Management bootcamp. Super stoked.
There will be 2 events open to the public.
1) Monday, June 5 at 4 p.m. there is a free screening of Away From Everywhere at City Cinema with Brad Gover, one of the producers who will do a Q&A after.
2) Industry Panel (Wednesday June 7, 10am, Haviland Club)
We are hosting a panel with industry people on “So, What Happens Next?”. The panel is open to anyone interested. The panelists represent the Canada Media Fund, Telefilm Canada, the Independent Production Fund, the Harold Greenberg Fund, the National Screen Institute, and Bell Media–all funding sources for film and television. (see attached bios of panelists and special guests)
We are very grateful to our sponsors for investing in our writers. And IMAC would like to thank Louise Lalonde for her years of tireless effort to build PEI Screenwriters’ Bootcamp into something amazing!
