We’ll be giving screenwriters their due. There’s not a single festival out there that I know of that focuses solely on screenwriters.” Cinco and Ken have selected their favorite films worthy of being watched multiple times because they ALL started with a wonderful screenplay. The movies’ screenwriters will join them for Q&A panels accompanying each screening to discuss the process of writing the movie, the choices made and how different the first drafts can be from the filmed version. “The Greatest Movie Ever Written!” happens Friday, September 25th and Saturday 26th.
