Annual competition features scripts set in Rhode Island and showcasing those stories to the international film industry

 

For screenwriters, Rhode Islandís diverse landscape can be a character all unto itself. And a state with so much character makes for great stories.

 

FLICKERS: Rhode Island International Film Festival (RIIFF) is now accepting entries for its 2013 Spotlight on Rhode Island Screenplay Competition. RIIFF invites talented screenwriters from around the world to submit their original screenplays whose characters and locations anchor the story in Rhode Island.

 

Stimulating the Rhode Island film industry creates in-state jobs and encourages a growing culture in film and the arts. The Spotlight on Rhode Island Screenplay Competition aims to capture the spirit of the Ocean State and inspire filmmakers to bring their productions, and their jobs, to a state eager to rekindle its film industry.  

 

"What a terrific idea! This is an amazing way to promote our natural resources and beautful locations within the Ocean State while bringing out the best talent from screenwriters and filmmakers around the globe," said Steven Feinberg, Executive Director Rhode Island Film & Television Office, One Capitol Hill.

 

Scripts must be submitted by mail to RIIFF, RI Spotlight, 83 Park St., Suite 1, Providence, R.I. 02903. A filled out copy of the entry form, which can be downloaded here, must be submitted along with the script.

 

Entries can be A. feature film (max. 130 pages), B. movie of the week (max.100 pages), or C. television pilot (max. 40 pages), and must be in standard industry formats.

 

Scripts may be in any genre, present day or historic period. Adaptations of novels/books are not acceptable unless submitted by the author. Writers must also supply a log line and short synopsis.

 

Finalist scripts will be r read and judged by a panel chaired by Helen Buttel, Ph.D., Associate
Professor Emeritus of English and Film Studies at Arcadia University, PA.


The winning screenplay will be placed in the hands of producers and industry professionals who have the power to take the script to full-scale production. The winner will also be promoted to the film & television industry by the Rhode Island Film Office and FLICKERS, as well as receiving an all-access RIIFF pass for 2014 including the ScriptBiz Screenwriters Workshop.
