The Philadelphia Writers’ Conference Board of Directors is pleased to announce that acclaimed screenwriter David Greenberg will teach a three-day workshop on writing and marketing a screenplay.

David Greenberg graduated from the film program at Temple University and has worked in production on both indie films and Hollywood features before shifting focus on screenwriting full time. He has written or doctored over 50 screenplays for features, shorts and documentaries. His feature writing and directing debut “Stomping Ground” premiered in 2016. The features, “Used To Love Her” and “What Matters Most” both played festivals in the past few years. His short film “Interrogation” won a Special Jury Prize at the LA Neo-Noir Film Festival and another short, “The True Meaning of Cool” won an award from The American Film institute.

David reads screenplays for the prestigious Austin Screenwriting Conference and has reviewed films for national publications. He contributed a chapter on the history of photography to publisher Walter Foster’s “The Daily Book of Photography” and was hired to write the book “100 Movies To Watch With Your Kids.” An interview with him and case study on the production of “Stomping Ground” will be included in an upcoming book about low-budget independent filmmaking.

David believes that effective films have to be about something that touches, provokes or otherwise moves an audience and that the source of this content originates in the writing. He specializes in screenplays for ultra-low-budget films.

He is currently working with a tech start up to develop interactive feature films for virtual reality. Also, he is working on a one-man stage show that will premiere in early 2019
