CineLibri workshop “The Art of Adapting a Screenplay” is meant to welcome in Sofia professionals, both debutants and experienced ones, from across Europe, who aspire to develop new projects in the field of literary adaptations to the big screen or TV movies. Our purpose is both to serve the current needs of the sector and to shape its future.
Aimed at complementing the knowledge and filling in specialized education gaps of both domestic and foreign film screenwriters, the workshop platform will gather experts, lectures and masterclasses in two consecutive days during the festival period. As CineLibri co-owners are dignified book publishers since 1989, and have promoted hundreds of prominent authors who represent different epoches, genres and styles, they have the expertise needed for accomplishing educational events of this nature. That is why the workshop is focused on the special skill of adapting literary text, being addressed to all filmmakers, including screenwriters, writers, directors and producers, interested in this delicate and meaningful occupation.
