Winds of change are blowing across the landscape of Indian Cinema. And, nowhere is it more apparent than in the way stories are being written for the screen.
Anticipating this trend, Whistling Woods International (WWI), has introduced a range of courses in Screenwriting under the helm of Anjum Rajabali whose credits include films like DROHKAAL, GHULAM, THE LEGEND OF BHAGAT SINGH and most recently, RAAJNEETI. The Screenwriting courses include a 2-year full time course, a 1-year course for professionals, Online Screenwriting courses and also a course in Writing for Television structured in a part-time format.

Anjum believes that the courses have been "designed to fulfill all the requirements of aspirants seriously interested in Screenwriting". Founder and Chairman, WWI, and filmmaker, Subhash Ghai adds, "As the whole business of the entertainment industry depends substantially on the merits of writers, then, writers should first know the technique and grammar of script seriously, by going through an institute, as is the case with architects who have to undergo professional training."
The Screenwriting Faculty has on board a formidable team of working professionals that includes Ashwini Malik (CLEVER AND LONELY and SORRY BHAI), now directing a film himself, Pubali Chaudhuri, an award-winner for her screenplay for ROCK ON!!, and presently working on another screenplay with Abhishek Kapoor and Chetan Bhagat, and Ranjan Ghosh, an alumnus of the first batch whose final project for his Screenwriting Diploma was Aparna Sen’s latest Bengali film, ITI MRINALINI.
