Finalists Announced for Ohio Independent Screenplay Awards

Gearing up for its ninth year of supporting independent filmmakers, Independent Pictures announces the last round of finalists for the three screenplay categories. This marks the first year for the organization's Best Voice of Color Award, which highlights the writing achievements from a screenwriter whose voice, story and characters speak to generally marginalized audiences.

BEST VOICE OF COLOR SCREENPLAY FINALISTS

All Rise by Tommy Bryant
Inugami by Rich Figel
Fugitive Slave by Dick Croy & Henry Burke
Diamond Event by Julie Williams


A favorite for screenplay submitters and judges alike, the Best Northcoast Screenplay Award focuses on stories that are set in Northern Ohio.

BEST NORTHCOAST SCREENPLAY FINALISTS

Her Majesty's Magician by David Pinzino
Coach Mom by Sharon Felder Roth
Waters of the Heart by Merle Goldberg & William Gerald Hamby
Iron Princes by Patrick Ryan


Finally, the Best Screenplay Award goes to the most overall well- written and crafted story.

BEST SCREENPLAY FINALISTS

One screenplay out of this list of finalists will receive the professional treatment at Script Mill, the Ohio Independent Film Festival's annual unstaged reading event. Similar screenplay readings are commonplace in Los Angeles and New York, and first brought to Northeast Ohio by the Ohio Independent Film Festival.

This years' festival runs from Saturday, November 2nd to Sunday November 10th and also includes Director of Photography, documentary production, and special effects workshops.

Independent Pictures supports emerging media artists and the exhibition of their films and video projects to a wider audience through the Ohio Independent Film Festival and other programs such as the Ohio Independent Screenplay Awards, Script Mill, film training programs, and workshops.
