The scripts will be sent to our three Final Round Judges:

Craig Gerber, a Los Angeles screenwriter and award winning director of short films, including one that was produced by Fox SearchLabs.

The Final Round Judges will select the Top Trio of Scripts to be read by actors on August 9, 2005 during ScriptBiz—the daylong screenwriting seminar of the Rhode Island International Film Festival (RIIFF), August 9-14, 2005, held in Providence, Rhode Island.

Congratulations, Finalists! And thank you to all who entered!
