Now celebrating our 10th Anniversary, the Great Lakes International Film Festival Scriptwriting Competition has officially opened its call for entries.
Writing is one of our fundamental art forms.
The written word when combined with the visual power of media has the power to move us to tears, laughter, fear, exaltation, and countless other emotions all within the span of a few moments. The right words can literally change the world.
-- The art of the story.
The main focus of our scriptwriting competition is to possibly give new writers the break they deserve while showcasing the talents of veteran writers.
The Great Lakes International Film Festival Scriptwriting Competition categories for scripts will include Narrative, Gay/Lesbian, Documentary, Experimental, Religious/Spiritual, Animation, Horror, Thriller, Science Fiction, Suspense, Grindhouse Horror, Horror Documentary, Horror Animation, and student films and scripts.
Our competition offers a $1,000.00 cash award to our first place winner of the 2011 competition among other prizes. The winning script will be forwarded to agents and industry professionals for consideration.www.greatlakesfilmfest.com
