Academy  Award winning screenwriter Michael Arndt will be a featured speaker and workshop leader at the 2018 conference. Every year we have playwrights and screenplay writers asking about this type of writing. We are excited to have him join us this year.

Arndt received one Oscar for his original screenplay, Little Miss Sunshine, and a second Oscar for his adaptation for Toy Story 3. Under his own name he wrote the 2015 Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and under the pen name, Michael deBruyn, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Oblivion. In all he has written seven screenplays since 2006.

We look forward to having him talk about what it takes to write a successful screen play and working in Hollywood.
