The Script Factory is a European script development organisation based in London, offering script writer and script development training, and development support for screenwriters. It also produces masterclass sessions across the UK and at international film festivals, with previous guests including Richard Linklater, Charlie Kaufman, Frank Cottrell Boyce, The Coen Brothers and Wes Anderson.


The Script Factory runs a range of training courses across the UK and abroad, mainly in scriptwriting, and script reading and development. Courses have traditionally focussed on film training, but in recent years have expanded to include story-based TV and radio training. Along with scriptwriter training in radio drama, film treatment writing, thriller (genre) and film adaptations, regularly offered courses include a Diploma in Script Development, offered in partnership with the National Film and Television School, and accredited by the Royal College of Art [1]; and an annual screenwriting forum, Serious Screenwriting, in partnership with BAFTA.[2]
