The BAFTA Rocliffe New Writing Forum will spotlight ‘The Colony’, from Irish screenwriter Aisling Corristine next week with a workshop co-chaired by fellow Irish-woman, director Farah Abushwesha.

The BAFTA Rocliffe New Writing Forum has announced that an extract of new original work from Irish author Aisling Corristine (The Road Less Travelled), will be workshopped in front of an industry audience at BAFTA in London on Monday, November 30th at 7.30pm. ‘The Colony’ is a new sci-fi feature penned by the Irish writer.

Irish writer, director and producer Farah Abushwesha (director, Chicken Soup, producer, Scouting Book for Boys, Micro Men) will co-chair the event in her role as Rocliffe founding member and will be joined in the task by director Gillies Mackinnon (Hideous Kinky, Tara Road, The Playboys).

‘The Colony’ will be part of a workshop alongside two other pieces and all three will be performed in the Princess Anne Theatre by actors cast by Laura Dickens CDG, and each be accompanied by music composed for each extract by Air-Edel. The event is rounded off by an informal networking session in the BAFTA bar where attendees will meet with the featured writers, directors, actors and other industry members.

Talking about the event Farah Abushwesha tells IFTN: “It is an amazing experience for a writer to see their work not only brought to life by actors, but framed with original music and designed backdrops at such an early stage in their development – a very unique script workout. I’ve always wanted to take this event to Ireland, and am still interested in exploring that option, so when the script selection panel short listed Aisling’s work I was thrilled to be featuring an Irish screenwriter. All three scripts are so diverse. It is a great opportunity for producers not only looking for original work, but to see them before a test audience without having gone into production. Element Films commissioned one of the feature extracts after attending an event not long ago.”

This event takes place at BAFTA’s HQ in London. For ticket information log on to Ma target="new" href="http://www.bafta.org/whats-on">www.bafta.org/whats-on and select 30 November.
