Discover the creative process of writing for the screen, all from the comfort of your own home with DFI’s exciting online Screenwriting for Beginners Lab in Arabic.
This fascinating lab will include the foundations of screenwriting, with mentors covering the ‘architecture’ of screenplays (storytelling, screenplay guidelines, non-verbal storytelling, and characterization) and the ‘formatting’ of a screenplay (visual grammar and Celtx/Final Draft).
Taught remotely, the lab is offered in Arabic, blending online lectures, assignments, and group discussions to give participants a comprehensive and well-rounded understanding of screenwriting.
As this is a beginner’s lab, the aim is for participants to produce a minimum of one scene for their screenplay. They will also have the opportunity to continue their filmmaking journey with the DFI development team, working towards further DFI training and grants programmes.
