MA Screenwriting

LFS logoThe London Film School (LFS) MA Screenwriting course is an intense one-year programme with the emphasis on developing the writer's original voice through small group and one-to-one mentoring from industry professionals.

LFS aims to encourage writing as a continuous practice, to stimulate reflective and critical approaches and to provide a specific historical background to film narrative, genres and dramaturgy.

The course is aimed at developing screenwriting skills in the context of a filmmaking community where writing is a collaborative process involving actors, directors, musicians, editors and producers. The course explores the boundaries between writing and directing and stimulates debate through classes in film history, crosscultural approaches to dramaturgy and script readings with professional actors.

Regular screenings of classic and contemporary films in the LFS's own film theatre and visits by contemporary filmmakers complement the core practical work of developing a feature screenplay.
