Syd Field is a legendary theoretician and screenplay consultant who, at the turn of the 1970s and 1980s, codified the theory of a three-act structure screenplay. His ideas have revolutionized the way of thinking about screenplay and for the next decades to come they became the fundamental point of reference for the screenwriting practitioners as well as the theoreticians. The books published by Syd, which are called “the screenwriting Bibles”, have been translated into 19 languages and their world sales exceeded one million copies.

For years Syd Field has conducted numerous screenwriting workshops, courses and lectures. Hollywood Reporter called him “the most sought after screenwriting teacher in the world”. This year at the Gdynia Film Festival not only will he be the jury member but he is also going to conduct a four-hour screenwriting course during which he will discuss, i.a., issues such as creating characters, designing the inciting incidents and action vs. character.
