22 October 2012, BRUSSELS — Building on the success of its 2009 event in Athens, Greece, screenwriters from around the globe will meet in Barcelona, Spain on November 9 and 10, 2012 to discuss changes to their craft and the business of film and television.

Organized by the Federation of Screenwriters in Europe (FSE), in conjunction with the International Affiliation of Writers Guilds (IAWG) and Foro de Asociaciones de Guionistas del Audiovisual (FAGA), the Second World Conference of Screenwriters will feature speakers on the cutting edge of new technologies and some of the most creative minds working in film and television, online and branded content, immersive and transmedia entertainment.

“The new global space holds exciting opportunities for creators and, admittedly, many challenges too,” says FSE president, screenwriter Christina Kallas. “The second World Conference of Screenwriters will bring leading figures from around the world to discuss all aspects that play a role in defining the way professional writers and their organizations can position themselves in relation to our changing world. WCOS2.0 will formulate a vision.” “In a market more and more dependent on international co-productions, and a borderless internet, it’s essential for writers to share information on what is happening in each other’s jurisdiction,” says Sylvie Lussier, screenwriter and IAWG policy and research group chair. Together, the three groups represent approximately 50,000 writers from Europe, North America, Mexico, India, Israel and New Zealand. The organizers also hope to attract delegates from emerging film industries in South America, Asia and Africa.

The conference is sponsored by generous donations from the Spanish collecting societies
Derechos de Autor de Medios Audiovisuales (DAMA) and Sociedad General de Autores y Editores (SGAE).
