Third Indian Screenwriters conference in Mumbai from 25-27 Feb

MUMBAI: The 3rd Indian Screenwriters? conference will be held from 25 to 27 February at Bandra in Mumbai.

Organised by the Film Writers Association (FWA), the conference will be attended by a host of senior writer-directors from the industry and experienced lawyers and legal experts. But, there is a hitch, only members of the FWA are eligible to attend the event. Non-members will need to register as members first.

The agenda of the conference has been divided in two parts. One is the ?creative issues? of television and film writers and the other is professional and legal issues faced by them.

According to the FWA website, the first includes deliberations on the "disconnect/connect of popular entertainment with our social reality, questions of why a society in dramatic transition is not reflected in our cinema and TV, the representation and portrayal of women in our stories, whether and how these interpretations influence audiences, the new definition of heroism in cinema today and the rise of machismo, what happened to the common man?s issues, why most TV shows seem to lose the plot, what is really driving content on TV today, does the screenwriter have a social responsibility, and such.

The latter will address the provisions of the Minimum Basic Contract for film writers and the Minimum Basic Contract for TV writers and the Copyright Act.
