Legendary Story Consultant, Robert McKee, will be taking part in a special event organised by the London Screenwriters Festival with the Barbican on Saturday 10 November. The Primacy of Story will focus on how and why we respond to story in the way we do, and why it is the primary way we communicate with each other.

The talk with Q&A will start at 11am and will last 1 and half hours with networking and refreshments before and after the event.

Over the last thirty years Robert McKee’s students have been responsible for some of our best known moments in film and television: screenwriting legends like Paul Haggis (Crash, Million Dollar Baby), William Goldman (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Misery, Marathon Man) and Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, Monsters) have all taken his seminal Story seminar.

With over 55,000 students worldwide, McKee is the undisputed master of the art, and form, of story.

In partnership with The London Screenwriters' Festival.  

Barbican offer the best new film releases alongside a unique programme of special seasons and events
