Glasgow's own screenwriting star Krysty Wilson is returning to her Royal Conservatoire roots in April for an exclusive conversation and Q&A event. 

The Royal Conservatoire graduate is one of the most-talked about new voices in film, having been behind box office smash 1917. 

Co-written alongside director Sam Mendes, Krysty's part in the stunning World War One epic scooped seven BAFTAs, two Golden Globes and three Oscars - earning her a first ever Oscar nomination in the Original Screenplay category. 

Krysty will be taking her own story to the spotlight on Monday, 20 April as she will reunite with her former tutor, film lecturer Dr Andy Dougan, for a creative conversation and audience Q&A.

She said: “RCS didn’t just prepare me for my career, it opened my eyes and showed me what my career could be.”

“It gave me my career — I had no idea I wanted to, or in fact even could, be a screenwriter before I was set that first writing task for the class. That was the ‘eureka’ moment.”

Professor Jeffrey Sharkey, Principal of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, said: “Krysty is a gifted storyteller whose work has captivated viewers across the world.

"To be nominated for an Oscar for your first feature film is the stuff of dreams and she is proof that talent and dedication to your craft can take you far – all the way from Glasgow to Hollywood.

"To have Krysty return to her RCS roots to share her inspirational story with the next generation of artists is a real gift and we can’t wait to welcome her back."

Krysty’s Creative Conversation is part of a dazzling Tinseltown trio at RCS. Glasgow Times:

The curtain will rise on musical City of Angels, from March 14, set in 1940s Los Angeles against a backdrop of old Hollywood glamour and true crime tales.

Krysty graduated from the Digital Film and Television programme at RCS in 2009, now the BA Filmmaking degree.

As well as 1917, this year will also see Last Night in Soho hit the big screen, which she co-wrote with acclaimed director Edgar Wright.
