This e-mail was received from a writer who won a First Prize Award with RIIFF:

 

"Speaking of great meetings--I met with Renegade Effects Studio
in North Hollywood last week and sold them "Princess & the Pirate"
with a financial contigency of thirty days. They were taking the
project to their financial backers this past weekend and will have
an answer to me in two weeks. Fingers crossed! Anyway, it was nice
to hear the sounds of gushing over my writing...even if there are a
few minor edits to be taken care of should the money men come
through for us. If the money comes through (they're anticpating
about a $43 million production budget) the project will be greenlit
immediately. I'll let you know when I get the final word.I can't thank you
and the festival enough for the help in getting my
script the exposure it so needed. Chat soon, Dana"

___________________________

 

FLICKERS: Rhode Island International Film Festival is calling for Screenplay Entries for its 19th annual competition. The Festival is accepting screenplays in all genres. Screenplays must have been written after 2013.


Screenplays entered into the competition will be adjudicated by a distinguished panel of industry professionals, educators, peers and film fans. The Grand Prize winner will become a central focus during ScriptBiz™ the screenplay pitch forum held during the Festival. The Grand Prize winner will also receive prizes valued at over $10,000. This includes travel, up to four nights accommodations, Final Draft software and screenplay promotions. Since the contest winners are announced following the main Festival, the Grand Prize winner’s work will be a focal point for RIIFF 2016 with the official trophy presented at the Festival's Opening Night Celebration.


Screenplays will be judged on creativity, innovation, vision, originality and the use of language. The key element is that of communication and how it complements and is transformed by the language of film.


The deadline for 2015 screenplay submissions is July 15, 2015. Very Important: Winners will be announced by October 12, 2015 (over Columbus Day Weekend).

 

Note, as this is important: This follows the main Festival since it allows us time to read the entries carefully and discuss the reviews with our adjudicators. As this competition is designed, the grand prize screenplay then becomes a focal point for the next Festival the following August.

 

Guidelines for Submission and an Entry Form can be downloaded below:

 

For the first time, the Festival is also taking electronic submissions through Withoutabox (linked above at the top of the page)
