Announcing 'Bridge of Spies' Script to Screen at LSFAccelerate

At LSF Accelerate, our London Screenwriters' Festival 9.5 in November... Bridge of Spies... Hanks, Spielberg, the Coens... Read the script and watch the movie LIVE with screenwriter Matt Charman as we dissect in detail the story, plot, characters — and of course, how he came to work with Spielberg and the Coen Brothers. Inspiring!


London Screenwriters' Festival 9.5...

Two days of full immersion

...what makes screenplays work, stories connect, audiences watch, producers option, and writers write... welcome to LSFAccelerate.


Dates: November 2nd and 3rd // PitchFest 1st and 2nd
Where: Regents University, London


Great speakers, illuminating seminars, deep dive industry insight... and we know you want it too... PitchFest 2019!


On November 2nd and 3rd, around 30 great minds from the world of screenwriting, film and TV will congregate onstage at Regents University. 


They will deliver creative light bulb moments, rocket fuel for the soul, deep insight into craft, and of course, powerful connections for everyone present, be you a new screenwriter or a seasoned producer.


The event is designed to inspire, elevate and… ACCELERATE your writing and career, keeping that momentum up.


Get YOUR pass here...

Pitchfest 2019

This is your chance to get your project in front of the people who can make it happen...

...if your pitch is good enough, your writing strong enough, and the project clearly has a reason to get produced.


On Friday the 1st of November, the day before the main event, we will run Pitchfest 2019, for everyone who attends LSFAccelerate. The PitchFest will run on both the Friday AND Saturday the 2nd, but NOT the 3rd. To be clear we have one day of PitchFest BEFORE the main event. This is to leverage exec availability during the weekdays.


If you have been to LondonSWF and pitched there, it's going to be exactly the same process where you book your slot one week before the event. More on the PitchFest HERE.


LSFAccelerate... Two days of full immersion...

...into WHY we choose this artform, how best to enjoy the journey and how most effectively to create and maintain a career...

Tickets are £199 but for the first 100 past LondonSWF delegates, they are £125.


Our speakers will be going live over the coming weeks as the schedule starts to populate.


We are also planning a special Script To Screen - Sunday Afternoon at the Movies — along with networking in the bar. In the past at the festival we hosted screenings of ‘Jaws’, ‘Fight Club’ and ‘Die Hard’, all with the screenwriter present. They are truly unforgettable experiences.
