Attention, all budding screenwriters, producers, actors, and directors: The people whose jobs you want will be in town next week.
Starting May 14, a screenwriters’ symposium is bringing an impressive roster of film professionals to the downtown Renaissance Hotel for three days of panel discussions, screenings, parties, and showcases. Billed as the Nashville Screenwriters Conference, the event is designed to stimulate the development of local scripts (and hence the local film industry).
“If more people from Tennessee wrote scripts,” says Karen Murphy, a conference participant and producer whose credits include This Is Spinal Tap, Waiting for Guffman, and Drugstore Cowboy, “more films about Tennessee would get made.”
Thus far, confirmed participants include screenwriters Leslie Bohem (Dante’s Peak), John Lee Hancock (Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil), Randy Feldman (Tango & Cash), Larry Wilson (Beetlejuice), and Jeff Cesario (Jack Frost); director Michael Lehmann (Heathers); MCA Nashville President Tony Brown; CAA music agent Brian Loucks; and L.A. Doctors producer Michelle Ashford.
The conference is open to the public and will continue through Sunday, May 16. Advance registration is $200. For more information, call 1-888-680-4491 or contact http://www.nashscreen.com.
