The script is the core of any project.
We want to enlight the raw talent of writing. Not everyone knows how to write. If in the wrong hands, a good script may end up as a flat movie, but a bad script never, ever is going to make a groundbreaking film.
With the Script and Storyboard Showcase, we reward ideas, talent, and structure.
If you got theses three winning factors, you have a good chance. Not only in this writing festival, but in the process of making a movie happen.
I wrote many scripts, I won a best screenplay in 2016 in Los Angeles, and I got nominated 5 times as a scriptwriter in festivals in the USA, and the UK.
Because I know the necessary hard work, and because I know a script, by itself, long before a movie, gives enough to get recognition, we created the Script and Storyboard Showcase.
