Great dialogue is the key to a successful script. While a strong narrative is the backbone of any film, it’s compelling dialogue that gives your screenplay rhythm and keeps the audience engaged with your characters. Join these panelists who have mastered the art of dialogue for a conversation on when to “show” and when to “tell” and how character speech is vital for shaping the tone of your story.

Must have an AFF Producers or Conference Badge for entry.
