Rollins’ annual literary festival, Winter With the Writers, returns this month with a slate of events with prose and poetry masters from around the world. Opening the festival this year is Chilean novelist, screenwriter and diplomat Antonio Skármeta, a recipient of Chile’s National Literature Prize. Skármeta fled Chile during the Pinochet dictatorship, a theme he addresses in his novel Ardiente Paciencia, which was adapted into the Academy Award-winning film Il Postino in 1995. While he’s in Central Florida, you can see another film at the Enzian based on one of Skármeta’s works, No, based on his play The Referendum. Skármeta also gives a free master class to aspiring writers and participates in a reading and Q&A session on Thursday. It’s merely the first week of the Winter With the Writers festival, so keep an eye out for more events all month long.

screening 6:15 p.m. Wednesday; master class 4 p.m. Thursday; reading 7:30 p.m. Thursday | Enzian Theater, 1300 S. Orlando Ave., Maitland; Bush Auditorium, Rollins College, 1000 Holt Ave., Winter Park | 407-646-2000 | rollins.edu | free
