About the event

Learn from Peter Callahan about his method of writing, and discuss other methods available for screenwriters. Participants will be asked to share their challenges in screenwriting and a group discussion will follow.

Peter Callahan was born and raised in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York. A high school dropout, he drove a taxi for several years before returning to school, eventually earning a Master's degree in journalism from Columbia University. Callahan optioned several screenplays to Hollywood studios before turning to independent filmmaking. His feature, "Against the Current", had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in 2009. Distributed by IFC Films, it stars Joseph Fiennes, Justin Kirk, Elizabeth Reaser, Michelle Trachtenberg, and Mary Tyler Moore. His first feature, "Last Ball", was the sole U.S. film selected for the 2001 San Sebastian Film Festival new director's competition. His movies have won several awards all over the world, including for his latest feature, “Out and About”, which also marks his acting debut.

PRAISE FOR OUT AND ABOUT

"Smart, beautifully written, and wonderfully acted.”   Chicago Tribune

"A great character-driven comedy.”  Santa Barbara News-Press

“A must-see gem.” Reeling Reviews

“Mr. Callahan is a charismatic and very appealing actor." Rex Reed

“A smart, beautifully shot and acted movie”   Gerald Peary, Arts Fuse

"Out and About"

An unconventional tale about a man coming to terms with his life throughout an afternoon walk. Raw, brutally honest, poignant, and funny, the film explores the contrast between our inner and outer selves, the conflict between old dreams and new realities, and one man’s search for meaning as he wrestles with aging, success, failure, and his ultimate place in the world.
