Want to speak to development executives from Working Title, Tiger Aspect Films, Scott Free, or

    Commissioning Editors from the BBC, Sky and ITV or would you prefer to seek an agent, perhaps from the Blake Friedmann Literary Agency, JFL Agency or the Linda Siefert agency? Then you need to go to next years' London Screenwriters' Festival.

    As well as the three days of the festival which took place from Friday 26th October to Sunday 28th, I invested time and a little extra money in going to the Pitching Thursday workshop. This gave me the opportunity to hone my pitching skills so that when I pitched toNed Dowd (Apocalypto, The Count of Monte Cristo) I could do it in a convincing manner. I pitched to several industry execs, and now it's up to me to follow up and see if anything comes of it.

    Over the three days I discussed a television series idea with Fenella Greenfield of Euroscript. www.euroscript.co.uk I used the Great British Pitch Fest to pitch a feature film to several independent producers and on the Stephen May Script Lab I gained valuable commercial insight about another feature film. In between those activities I managed to attend a few talks as well as network. The discussions I mIssed I shall catch up with on the LSFwebsite.

    What an amazing weekend. I'd recommend it to everyone interested in writing for film or television. www.londonscreenwritersfestival.com
