The 7th conference will take place at the University of Film and Television ‘Konrad Wolf’ in Potsdam-Babelsberg, Germany. The key theme of this conference is: ‘Screenwriting and Directing in Audiovisual Media’, focusing on the relationship between writing and directing, whether practiced by a writer and a director, or a writer-director and her / his team. We intend to look at this relationship across a wide field of media and practices, – from fiction, genre, TV series to documentaries as well as cross media, 180° and 360° cinema production.
