Event description

Description

It's our first Beltane networking event of the autumn! This one's a chance to meet the new Edinburgh International Film Festival (EIFF) Screenwriter-in-Residence, Krysty Wilson-Cairns, over breakfast.

Glasgow-born Krysty now spends much of her time in LA, working with the likes of Sam Mendes and Darren Aronofsky. However, for the next year, you might also find her hanging out in one of Edinburgh’s university libraries, or even at a department coffee morning!

Krysty is fascinated by all academic research that could be argued to be stranger-than-fiction, from dark matter to the secret lives of Victorian women. This new, first-ever EIFF residency will allow her to meet researchers and get inspired, while hopefully making sure research in her screenplays is represented as accurately as possible.

Come along to this Beltane Breakfast to meet Krysty and find out how you could share your research with her over the coming year.

If you can't make the Breakfast but you'd like to work with Krysty, please email info@beltanenetwork.org.
