As a specially curated sub-festival under the GLF umbrella, a first of its kind ‘Indian Screenwriters Festival’ (ISF) will be launched, in Ahmedabad. ISF is being held in association with Screenwriters Association, Mumbai, and will serve as a platform for an exciting dialogue and exchange between screenwriters from the Hindi film industry and Gujarati cinema.
Under ISF, stimulating One on One sessions with maverick writer Vijayendra Prasad (in conversation with Abhijeet Deshpande) and ace writer-director Vishal Bhardwaj (in conversation with Anjum Rajabali) will be conducted on December 21 and 22, respectively.
