Day of the Writer

Running Time: 360 mins

Imagination + Technology = Sci Fi

Science fiction is a world where technology, imagination and exploration of the “what if?” coincide, creating an environment that fosters the maverick spirit both in author, character and viewer. Capturing all of that in a screenplay, arguably the backbone of all great films, to be performed in less than two hours isn’t easy, but it’s a necessary step in taking the potentially world-changing vision and getting it to a captive audience. Join us at CQFF21’s Day of the Writer to learn all about the process of sci-fi writing from renowned masters.
