Tim BevanThe London Screenwriters’ Festival is delighted to announce that Tim Bevan, co-Founder and co-Chairman of Working Title Films, has joined our growing roster of speakers.  Working Title are one of Britain’s most renowned, respected and successful production companies with credits including ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’, ‘Bridget Jones’s Diary’, ‘The Soloist’ and ‘Frost/Nixon’ among a back-catalogue of over 75 films.

We’ve been sifting through the surveys you’ve returned to us (huge thanks to everyone who took the time to fill one out) and one of the recurrent themes was a desire to see big name producers and development execs talking about how they work and how you can build a relationship with them.

So we listened.  We got in touch with Working Title and not only did Tim agree to come and join us, but so did Development Executive Amelia Granger, who’s been with the company since 1994 and has worked on films as diverse as “Pride and Prejudice”, “Nanny McPhee” and “The Boat That Rocked”.

Tim Bevan – and Working Title –  is one of the foremost producers in Britain, having brought the world no less than seven Coen Brothers films as well as films from Paul Greengrass (‘United 93′), Stephen Daldry (‘Billy Elliot’), Edgar Wright (‘Hot Fuzz’, ‘Shaun of the Dead’), Joe Wright (‘Pride and Prejudice’, ‘Atonement’) and Richard Curtis (‘Love, Actually’).  A truly influential and powerful producer not only in British film, but worldwide, he brings his experience from over 25 years at the helm.

We are incredibly excited that Amelia and Tim have agreed to come along and share their knowledge and experience with us.  Don’t miss this truly unique opportunity to ask the questions you want to know the answer to from two of the UK’s biggest, brightest and best execs – get your ticket now!
