As part of Glasgow Film Festival 2017 (GFF17), LUX Scotland is pleased to present a series of screenings as part of the festival’s visual arts strand, Crossing the Line; a SUPERLUX Masterclass with artist Anja Kirschner; and this two-day intensive SUPERLUX Workshop, Page to Picture! Screenwriting for Artists, also with Anja Kirschner.
Highlights of the Crossing the Line programme include the Scottish premiere of Kirschner’s new feature film, Moderation (2016), and a screening of Nikos Nikolaidis’ experimental sci-fi narrative, Morning Patrol (1987). Both screenings will be followed by a Q&A with Anja Kirschner, LUX Scotland Director, Nicole Yip, and actress Michele Valley, who features in both titles. See the full festival programme for further information.
'Page to Picture! Screenwriting for Artists' is a two-day intensive workshop with artist, Anja Kirschner. The workshop will take place over two days on the 24th and 25th February, 11.00am - 5.00pm at the Seminar Room, Reid Building, Glasgow School of Art.
Kirschner will introduce approaches to screenwriting outside of conventional formats and how to tailor them for your own moving image projects. The focus will be on expanded narrative structures, adaptation and appropriation, using examples from her own work as well as that of other artists, directors and writers, including Yvonne Rainer, Emily Wardill, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Alain Robbe-Grillet and Kathy Acker.
This practical and theoretical workshop is designed for artists working with the moving image and experimental filmmakers who want to develop screenwriting as an integral part of their practice.
