VIFF Industry

Action films throttle the hero against incredible physical feats. Dramas center on realistic, in-depth development of a character. The science fiction picture examines the effect of imagined scientific/technological innovations in a futuristic world. Today, film genres have expanded into sub-genres and hybrid genres, melding elements in new, compelling, and sometimes strange ways. This writer’s panel will focus on the process: how to successfully straddle genres; how to understand audience expectations and how to shake them up to create in-demand and celebrated fiction.

Guests:
Dennis Heaton, Executive Producer, Motive
Hart Hanson, Creator and Showrunner, Bones
Nicole Perlman, Screenwriter, Guardians of the Galaxy
Simon Davis Barry, Creator, Continuum

Moderator: Tim Goodman, Chief TV Critic, The Hollywood Reporter
