The SRN is comprised of scholars, writers, and practice-based researchers. Started in 2006, the network has achieved a substantial critical mass over the years – _currently counting 700 members from 50+ countries.


The aim of the annual International Conference is to continue, and expand, discussions around the screenplay and to strengthen a rapidly emerging, and global, research network.

Theme: Globalizing Screenwriting


Throughout the long and troubled history of Europe, migration and immigration influenced the continent. European filmmakers began to leave for Hollywood. Their enduring impact on American cinema cannot be overrated and lingers to this day. Vice versa migration into Europe has had an enormous effect on European film production, both historically speaking and even more so in recent times. The specific mixture of storytelling modes in diasporic cinema, or what Hamid Naficy calls “accented cinema” is a major point of investigation for screenwriting studies.

Taking these simple facts as starting points the conference wants to discuss the conditions of screenwriting in a globalized world. The dominance of “western” paradigms as well as the influence of modes of narration from the Global South, both historically and recently are the main topics of the conference. These mutually influences should be discussed on personal, structural, theoretical and practical levels.
