WGSA Indigenous Screenwriting Programme

The Writers Guild of South Africa (WGSA) in collaboration with the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture (DSAC) has developed a screenwriting programme for emerging screenwriters, which has been translated into all South African official languages.
The programme will cover the following main areas:
  • Screenwriting is a Job
  • Script
  • Story
  • Structure
The programme is practical and the intended outcome is that each participant will complete a short film script over the two and a half day programme. Refreshments and a light lunch will be served.
The programme is FREE to WGSA members. There is a 50% discount on membership fees during August and September 2021!

Full Members: R350
Candidate Members: R250
Student Members (with valid registration): R110
Corporate Membership: R600
