What, When, Where this Weekend - Katyn, The Oscars!

What, When, Where is a weekly guide to select screenings, discussions and events in the NYC-area of interest to screenwriters. Have an event you'd like to see listed here? Give us a heads-up at

A slow week for movie openings, with only Fired Up! and Madea Goes To Jail getting any sort of wide release (did I mention this weekend was slow?), but at least we can catch up with out Netflix queue and prep for this Sunday's Academy Awards.

Haven't seen all of the nominees? You can still read many of the screenplays for free. Check out the links here, here, here and here.

Opening this weekend...

KATYN, written by Andrzej Mularczyk and Przemyslaw Nowakowski, dir. by Andrzej Wajda

Premise: An examination of the Soviet slaughter of thousands of Polish officers and citizens in the Katyn forest in 1940.

Playing: Film Forum

Ashes and Diamonds and Kanal are absolute classics. Far from a feel-good movie, but I'm sold.

What are you doing/seeing this weekend? Doing anything special for the Oscars?
