Script to Screen and the New Zealand Writer’s Guild proudly present our first Wellington Writer’s Room of the year. We are joined by BAFTA and Academy Award winning screenwriter David Seidler.

David is a prolific writer for stage and screen who won Best Original Screenplay at both the Academy Awards and BAFTA’s in 2011 for THE KING’S SPEECH. He will speak to writer/actor Loren Taylor (EAGLE VS SHARK) about his journey as a writer and the story behind his current magnum opus.

Tuesday 3rd March, 5:30pm drinks, 6pm-7pm talk, Ngā Taonga Sound and Vision. $5 koha appreciated, includes a complimentary glass of wine.

Join us afterwards for a slice of Heaven Woodfire Pizza.

David generously gave his time and expertise to mentor at our inaugural Writers’ Lab Aotearoa. Applications for this year’s Lab are now open and close on April 20th.
