WGFestival 2016: ALL ACCESS

Date: Apr 16, 2016

The Writers Guild Foundation
In Partnership with the Academy Education and Nicholl Fellowships Programs



Like any Hollywood sequel, our craft day symposiums get bigger and faster and furious-er.

This year, we’ll gather the industry’s best and brightest writers, producers, executives and insiders — for TWO ALL-DAY events — at the Writers Guild Theater in Beverly Hills.

The FIRST ALL-DAY EVENT of the WGFestival is Saturday, March 19: THE BUSINESS. We will focus on your career in the screenwriting trade and give you the opportunity to win a meeting at WME, Golden Tickets to all of our events, and an opportunity to get your script read by our group of industry insiders.



The SECOND ALL-DAY EVENT of the WGFestival is Saturday, April 16: THE CRAFT. As more opportunities abound across many different platforms, creators, showrunners, and executives will open the magic box and discuss their craft and what’s next.

CLICK HERE for individual day passes for April 16th and PANELIST updates for April 16th.


Our ALL-ACCESS PASS includes the following.
1. Tickets to both days.
2. Reserved seating.
2. A special ALL-ACCESS PASS holder event.
3. Get the first 10 pages of your screenplay or television script in the hands of seasoned writers, showrunners, and executives.***

***Those who purchase the special ALL-ACCESS PASS will get their first 10 pages read of any script that they submit. You will receive a one page feedback form from the person who read your 10 pages. We have a limited number of these tickets available.
