The fourth edition of the International Screenwriters' Festival is to have a new date and venue.

The event will shift to October 26-29 at the famous Cheltenham Ladies College school in the Cotswolds town.

The event has established itself in recent years as a must-attend event, bringing together writers and the wider international business.

The organisers say the move of date and venue will allow for further expansion.

Speakers at the event have included Guillermo Del Toro, Terry Pratchett, Ronald Harwood, David Hare, Christopher Hampton, Bill Nicholson, Julian Fellowes, Stephen Frears, Noel Clarke and Stephen Woolley.

Last year, more than 600 delegates attended the event, supported by Screen International, from 15 countries. Sponsors include: South West Screen, Cheltenham Council, Sky, BBC Films, UK Film Council, and Channel 4.

Previous events have been held at the picturesque Manor By The Lake in Cheltenham, which will continue to play a part in the event.
