The world we live and work in today has created new working conditions where storytellers, screenwriters and filmmakers collaborate with colleagues from other countries and cultures. This involves new challenges regarding the practice of transcultural screenwriting and the study of writing screenplays in a multi-cultural environment. Globalization and its imperatives have seen the film co-production emerge as a means of sharing production costs and creating stories that reach transnational audiences.

Transcultural Screenwriting: Telling Stories for a Global World provides an interdisciplinary approach to the study of screenwriting as a creative process by integrating the fields of film and TV production studies, screenwriting studies, narrative studies, rhetorics, transnational cinema studies, and intercultural communication studies. This book applies the emerging theoretical lens of ‘transcultural studies’ to open new perspectives in the debate around notions of transnationalism, imperialism and globalisation, to build stronger links across academic disciplines, and to create new areas for consideration particularly in the screenwriting context.

This reader combines methods for studying as well as methods for doing. It draws on case studies and testimonials from writers from all over the globe including South America, Europe and Asia.

Transcultural Screenwriting: Telling Stories for a Global World is characterized by its scope, broad relevance, and emphasis on key aspects of screenwriting in an international environment.
