The Uniqueness of the Indian Film Script

50 years of the Film & TV Institute of India, Pune
FTII and the Film Writers Association present

A Seminar on

‘The Uniqueness of the Indian Film Script’

FTII, Pune, August 28-29, 2010

National Film Archive of India, Law College Road,  Pune – 411 004.

In collaboration with the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) Pune, the Film Writers Association is organising a seminar on 'The Uniqueness of the Indian Script' on August 28-29, 2010 at FTII Pune.

The film script is the foundation of any cinematic presentation, and we use the term to include not only the story, screenplay and dialogue but music, song and dance, emotional impulses and likely mis-en-scene as well. In short, the term script is used in its broadest sense to include all aspects of film form and content. Conceived as a series of talks and panel discussions with scholars, academics and practitioners, the seminar will broadly make the journey of the Indian film from its genesis to its current phase. We hope to examine the early form of Indian cinema and its major influences; and delineate its broad journey, with various distinct phases and an examination of the contribution of certain individuals who have made indelible marks on the Indian script. Music (song and dance) and Melodrama are two distinctive features of Indian cinema that we will dwell on. An inquiry into current trends (1995-2010) will be followed by a discussion on what the future holds for the Indian film script.

We expect the audience to be made up of screenwriting students, aspiring screenwriters, practising screenwriters, young directors and other film people. The general interaction should be vigorous and insightful.

Please find attached the concept note, the time table of the seminar and a brief framework for each session with a list of speakers.

FTII-FWA events are usually very well attended so if you're interested in attending this seminar, it would help if you can reach the venue and
register yourself by 9.30 AM.


Warm regards.
