The Q&A Film Screening Series



That line outside the Los Angeles Film School is for The Q&A With Jeff Goldsmith’s recent screening of indie zom-rom-com (zombie romantic comedy) Life After Beth. The Q&A screening series is the brainchild of Jeff Goldsmith (former Editor of Creative Screenwriting, current Publisher of Backstory), combines free screenings of new releases with nuts-and-bolts screenwriter interviews, providing a service not only to LAFS’s students, but also the LA screenwriter community as a whole.


The Q&A hosts more than 50 screenings a year in varied genres. Recent offerings include screenings with the writers of Flight, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Muppets Most Wanted, and even the Comedy Central cable series Workaholics. You can get on the email list for screenings here.


Screenings tend to fill up very quickly, so if you don’t line up at the corner of Ivar and Sunset a solid 45 minutes before show time, you’ll be craning your neck in the front row.


BUT, there is an alternative, as the Q&A sessions themselves are always released as a free podcast. So go and check out some back episodes, and sign up to be emailed about the next free screening in Hollywood!
