The Art of Screenwriting

November 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Toronto filmmaker Chandler Levack talks about her experience writing a screenplay for her award-winning and debut feature film, I Like Movies. Set in Burlington, the film is based on her experience growing up in Aldershot and working at a local video store.

Before there’s a movie, there are only words on a page in the form of a screenplay—the foundation for characters and dialogue, action and plot, camera angles and editing that create the story and the experience of the movie.

I Like Movies was named Best Canadian Picture by the Vancouver Film Critics Circle in February 2023 and chosen for TIFF Canada’s Top 10.
