IFFF Dedicates Saturday to the Writers

The third day of the International Family Film Festival is scheduled to be a bonanza of riches for the screenwriters. Starting at 10 am with a Panel led by the acclaimed Founder and Director of the Writer's Boot Camp, Jeffrey Gordon, followed by an emersive writer's session led by The Writer's Workshop after lunch, and then a two hour "Pitch Me" experience where writers are invited to bring material to pitch for feedback from a panel of acquisitions professionals in the film industry.

The Screenwriters Showcase begins at 4:45pm in the Chaplin Theater at the Raleigh Studios in Hollywood. Each of the Semi-Finalist screenwriter's in the competition has been asked to select a short excerpt from their script to be prepared for a staged reading by professional actors. Following each of the presentations the writer's will be introduced and be involved in an open discussion with the attending audience.

The Screenwriters Showcase is followed immediately by a Screenwriter's Wrap Party where the winners of the Screenwriters Competition will be announced and the IFFFAwards will be given.

This is a full day of events scheduled to enrich and promote the screenwriter. Space is limited so be sure to reserve your tickets for each Panel, the Showcase and for the Wrap party. Tickets for the three Panels are $15 each. The Wrap Party is $25 per ticket. All Screenwriting Finalists are given complimentary admissions to the Showcase and to the Wrap Party. Tickets go on sale January 8.

The Writer's Boot Camp

Writer's Boot Camp started in New York as the Writer's Think Tank in 1992 and spread to Los Angeles due to popular demand soon after opening a studio in Santa Monica. Writer's Boot Camp empowers writers and creative professionals to achieve personal and career breakthroughs as other successful Writer's Boot Camp alumni have already done to earn their places at the highest levels of the entertainment industry. As a result their alumni have written scripts that have produced over a half billion dollars in box office sales.

The list of alumni include;
Alfredo Barrios: Writer, LAW and ORDER, JUSTICE, David Levien: Writer/Director/Producer/Novelist, OCEANS THIRTEEN Writer, THE ILLUSIONIST Writer, WALKING TALL Writer, THE RUNAWAY JURY, Writer, ROUNDERS, Writer, KNOCKAROUND GUYS, Director/Writer.MARTI NOXON: Writer/ Producer/ Director, BROTHERS & SISTERS (ABC) Executive Producer, PRISON BREAK (Fox) Consulting Producer, ANGEL (WB) Writer/ Producer, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER (WB) Executive Producer/ Creator, Lesli Linka Glatter: Director, GREY'S ANATOMY, STUDIO 60,
KJ Steinberg: Writer, Producer, THE NINE (ABC) Co-Executive Producer/ Writer, JUDGING AMY (CBS) Writer.

Writer's Boot Camp (WBC) launchs writers' careers in the film and television industry through a practical apoproach to the writing process and a strong belief that writers need to write.
WBC provides writers with tools to initially brainstorm and conceptualize their first draft, and clarify the rewriting process until their idea is a fully realized script.

Tickets go on sale January 8. For more information on Writer's Boot Camp visit them online at
