The conference, meant for aspiring writers and filmmakers as well as TV and movie fans, was created by Cathy Rescher of Mob Communications, who modeled the event after the Austin Film Festival screenwriters' conference.

Presenters include some of the names behind X-Men: First Class, Bridge to Terabithia, Epic Rap Battles of History, Black Sails, Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Thor. Topics include: family films; i-phone filmmaking; independent filmmaking (on producing and directing your own script); story structure; the value of pre-production; and much more.

For a complete list of presenters and topics, see here.

The conference runs 10 a.m.-5 p.m. tomorrow; 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday; and 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. (Pictured is Alvaro Rodriguez, a screenwriter who worked on Machete and From Dusk Til Dawn 3.)

Single-day registration starts at $60 ($30 for students) for Friday only and runs to $90/$45 for Saturday and Sunday admission. Full-conference passes are $220/$110.

The convention center is located at 1000 Fort Duquesne Blvd., Downtown.
