AWF/Foxtel Screenwriter’s Address: Andrew Bovell


The annual Foxtel Screenwriter’s Address, presented by the Australian Writers’ Foundation, recognises the ways in which writers shape our society and culture. Each year, a leading Australian screenwriter is invited to speak on their craft and its place in the world.

This year’s speaker, Andrew Bovell, is best known for his multi-award-winning Australian classic film Lantana. Andrew has just finished adapting John le Carré’s A Most Wanted Man, for a film that will star Philip Seymour Hoffman. His other film credits include Blessed, Head On and Strictly Ballroom.

Note: Andrew Bovell will be presenting a keynote lecture. There will not be an audience Q&A on this occasion.

Proudly presented by the Australian Writers’ Foundation and generously supported by Foxtel.
