You will all no doubt be aware by now that this year’s conference has been moved to Leeds in the North of England. We would like to extend a very warm welcome from the organising team and invite you to join us in this vibrant and cultural city. The conference will be hosted by Leeds Beckett University in partnership with Leeds University. The dates of the conference, 8-10 September 2016, remain unchanged and the main venue will be at Beckett’s City Campus in the centre of Leeds.
The venue for the 9th SRN international conference (2016) has been changed from Stockholm. The conference will now take place in Leeds, UK, hosted by Leeds Beckett University and the University of Leeds, in partnership with Leeds Trinity University.
The dates of the conference will remain the same, Thursday 8th September to Saturday 10th September 2016. Papers already accepted for the conference will be scheduled as before, with the only change being that delegates should travel to Leeds instead.
Call for papers
The 9th Screenwriting Research Network (SRN) International Conference will take place in Stockholm, Sweden on Thursday 8th to Saturday 10th September 2016.
The conference will focus on Screenwriting between Artistic Freedom and Norms. The conference wants to examine these rules, norms and conventions – the frameworks in which screenwriters work. We want to discuss the history as well as the ongoing discourse about manuals, the role and function of rules within teaching screenwriting, as well as the rules of certain genres and media.
We invite discussion about screenwriting as an art between artistic freedom and norms.
The Screenwriting Research Network is looking for proposals to host its international conferences in 2018, 2019 and 2020.
The Screenwriting Research Network (www.screenwritingresearch.com) is an international research network of scholars, reflective practitioners and practice-based researchers, interested in the conceptualisation of film, TV and other media narratives; or Screenwriting Studies, as it has become known. Membership is currently drawn from 30 countries worldwide and is growing strongly; it is up 35% on last year. There is strong representation from the USA, Europe and Australasia, with recent members also drawn from other countries, including Brazil, Portugal, Peru and South Korea.
The 8th International Screenwriting Research Network (SRN) Conference: Screenwriting, Text and Performance will take place at Senate House, University of London, UK on Thursday 10th to Saturday 12th September 2015 with the support of the Institute of English Studies
It is organised by a committee from different institutions grouped around the London Screenwriting Research Seminar – including the University of Bangor, the University of East London, The University of Greenwich and Royal Holloway, University of London.

Screenwriting & Directing Audiovisual Media
Here you can find the program as overview
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.
We are having a great Conference at Madison, thanks to JJ Murphy, Kelley Conway and all the staff of University of Wisconsin.
It is almost imposible to summarize all the interesting and wonderful presentations that have taken place during these days. To have a taste on what has been going on here, you can check the program.
Thanks to everybody! CSB
David Bordwell wrote a post about the WCFTR (Wisconsin Center for Feature and TV Research) and our upcoming conference, Screenwriting in a Global and Digital World, that will take place in August, 2013, at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, USA.
Speaking of research, our campus will be hosting a major conference that includes the WCFTR as a key component. The Screenwriting Research Network International is holding its annual gathering here on 20-22 August. I attended the Brussels SRNI conference two years ago and wrote about it here and here. I think it’s fair to say that a hell of a time was had by all. This is a stimulating bunch, and anyone interested in filmmaking would benefit from attending.
Keynote speakers this year are Larry Gross (48 Hrs, True Crime, We Don’t Live Here Anymore, Veronika Decides to Die), Jon Raymond (Old Joy, Wendy and Lucy, Meeks Cutoff , and several novels), and. . . Kristin!
The scholars are no less stellar and include Kathryn Millard, Richard Neupert, Jill Nelmes, Steven Maras, Riikka Pelo, Eva Novrup Redvall, Nate Kohn, Ronald Geerts, Andy Horton, Ian Macdonald, and a great many more. Go here for a complete program. You will be impressed.

Thank you, David!
