Anja Kirschner will introduce approaches to screenwriting outside of conventional formats and how to tailor them for your own moving image projects. The focus will be on expanded narrative structures, adaptation and appropriation, using examples from her own work as well as that of other artists, directors and writers, including Yvonne Rainer, Emily Wardill, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Alain Robbe-Grillet and Kathy Acker.

This practical and theoretical workshop is designed for artists working with the moving image and experimental filmmakers who want to develop screenwriting as an integral part of their practice.

Anja Kirschner is an artist whose films draw on factual, literary and pop-cultural sources and deal with materiality, digitality and narrativity and their share in the (de)formation of subjectivities and political agency. She is the recipient of the 2011 Jarman Award and her films have been widely exhibited and screened internationally, including at Secession, Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, Tate Modern, the Berlinale, the BFI London Film Festival and the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen.
