Superstar Aamir Khan will be the chief guest at the Indian Screenwriters Conference (ISC).

The fifth edition of the conference will be held from August 1 to 3 at St Andrew's Auditorium, Bandra.

Noted journalist and Padma Shri awardee Vinod Dua will be delivering the keynote address at the inaugural day of the conference, whose theme this year is 'Where Mind Is Without Fear'.

The biennial event is organised by the Screenwriters Association.

The event will see panel discussions on various topics which will be addressed by many industry insiders, including Sumeet Vyas, "Haider" writer Basharat Peer, Siddharth Roy Kapur, Akshat Verma, Somen Mishra, Amit Masurkar and others.

"This conference is gathering of not only screenwriters but also directors, producers, tv heads, academicians and creative minds. As participant's knowledge and insight I got from previous screenwriter's conference was immense," Sanjay Chouhan, Conference Convenor, said in a statement.

"We want to enhance it further with this conference. We want to bring people related to screen under one umbrella to share their experience, knowledge, mistakes, brickbats. trolls, rewards and achievement. Alone we may not be able to do anything but together we can sing 'where the mind is without fear'," he added.

The conference was started in 2016 with the idea of addressing issues concerning Indian screenwriters and lyricists, while also encouraging a dialogue on the surrounding social realities, within and outside the film and TV industries.
