Deadline Approaching for entries for Screenwriting Competition UNTITLED

The deadline for  the third UNTITLED public screenwriting event is this Friday, 30th November 2012.

This unique industry event shall be held during the festival with shortlisted winners invited to give a public presentation of their screenplay proposal to a panel of high profile industry professionals, who will then decide on the winning team. The exciting genre this year for UNTITLED submissions is Family Films. The event provides an opportunity to receive a prize for the winning screenplay of up to €16,000 and the deadline for entries is November 30th.

There has been an overwhelming response to this event since its launch in 2011, with over 550 submissions received over the last two events. The writing team of Enda Loughman and Mike Ahern took home the prize of a €16,000 Development Loan towards the development of their comedy screenplay The Bogman King in 2011 with Michael Kinirons and Jamie Hannigan taking the prize for their 1916-themed Come Monday, We Kill Them All at this year’s competition.

Following the same format as previously utilised, writers are invited to submit a one page summary for a feature film working within the genre of Family Films. These will be narrowed down to a shortlist of five entries and the shortlisted writers will then be asked to write a few sample scenes of the script. Each shortlisted candidate will present their project to an independent panel of high profile international industry professionals in front of a public audience.

A note on the genre of Family Films: This is a very specific theme but the potential interpretations are endless. Very simply, we want to fund a future-classic, a film that will appeal to all members of the family. And we want your help. There’s no rule saying family films have to be entertaining-but can you think of one that isn’t? Not to mention thought-provoking, uplifting and spectacular! All we ask is that you submit the extraordinary. (NB: We’ll welcome submissions for both live action and animation feature films.)
