MPI Filmmakers Learn from Clint Eastwood's Latest Screenwriter

Recently, select MPI filmmakers joined us for the first of our exclusive masterclass dinner series. This special masterclass featured screenwriter Dorothy Blyskal, best known for writing The 15:17 to Paris, Clint Eastwood’s latest film. Dorothy was recently named one of Variety’s 10 Screenwriters to Watch.

Over the course of the evening, the masterclass attendees learned what it takes to break into the industry as screenwriters, and Dorothy shared her best advice for pitching ideas and seeing a script from conception to fruition. Here's what one of our filmmakers had to say:

“It was helpful to hear someone else's experiences in trying to break into the industry so hopefully I can imitate what worked for her and avoid what didn't. Because of this class I'm much more comfortable with the idea of presenting my own work to people I might know and opening up to them about my goals and ambitions.” – Masterclass attendee
