Three TIFF screenwriters share their successful creative strategies.
In an insight-packed thirty minutes, the TIFF 2017 screenwriting panel focused on three films: each of them has been well-received, each is a powerful story, and each one happens to have a narrative grounded in childhood. On the stage were three writer/filmmakers, all equally passionate, each one there to discuss the most crucial–and arguably the most difficult–part of the filmmaking process: turning a blank page into something worth filming.
The result? Three creative strategies, each one shaped by a different approach…and each one an essential piece of advice.
“Because this wasn’t a studio picture, I had the liberty of playing around with the story even in the edit.”
