The Authors Circle: Process and Perspective in the Literary Arts

In film circles, most discussions of literature tends to center on notions about adaptation. But we’ve invited a group of authors to share their thoughts on process. Where does personality in writing come from? How do they maintain an ongoing experience of the world? Who do they show their work to and when? What are the things they can’t write about and why? How have films changed their approach to writing, and why is screenwriting different? Join Walter Mosley and others for this illuminating discussion.

While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
