Saffron Screen offer exciting new Screenwriting and Cinema Courses

Local, Independent cinema Saffron Screen has teamed up with Head of Screenwriting at London Film School Jonathan Hourigan, to create two courses to be held at Saffron Walden County High School.The two courses will include a one-day screen-writing course, introducing mainstream screenwriting conventions in relation to plot, character and theme, along with techniques for the generation and development of ideas and professional screenplay format and layout. The second is a six-week British Cinema course, exploring post-war cinema.

Both courses will be led by Jonathan Hourigan, a writer, director, script consultant and teacher. He was assistant to Robert Bresson on L’Argent and is currently Head of Screenwriting at London Film School.

“I’m really excited about these courses,” said Hourigan. “Saffron Screen is a wonderful place that not only shows an exciting, broad range of films, but also is a place where people can engage in serious, well-informed discussion about cinema.”

The one-day screenwriting course will be held on 17th November and the British Cinema course will run from 9th October – 20th November. To book places, head to the Saffron Screen website.

Saffron Screen intend to hold further film studies courses next year and welcome feedback from the local community on subjects they would like covered.
