The Abu Dhabi Film Commission has announced its first Education Day will take place at the 2010 Circle Conference on October 14.

The initiative will involve workshops and interactive sessions designed for students to learn how to create better stories, experience a film crew in action and learn about the growing number of film-making opportunities and careers in the UAE.

Students will work with Melbourne International Film Festival chair Claire Dobbin, who serves as a script advisor and editor with development agencies, writers and producers in a number of countries such as the UK, Germany and Australia.

The Circle Conference will take place from October 13-15 and runs concurrently with the Abu Dhabi Film Festival that takes place from October 14-23.
