Call for Voices of Color Screenplays

Independent Pictures, presenter of the Ohio Independent Film Festival & the Ohio Independent Screenplay Awards, is seeking screenplays for its Best Voice of Color Screenplay Award. The award emphasizes Independent Pictures' commitment to people of color, their stories, and getting those stories to the big screen.

"…Too many writers only enter the big contests, in which the odds are not good for screenplays that don't fit the typical Hollywood formula. Few, if any, of those contests have a special category to recognize writers of color or scripts that concern minorities," says Rich Figel, winner of the 2002 Best Voice of Color Screenplay Award for his script INUGAMI.

The Ohio Independent Screenplay Awards introduce aspiring writers to the professionals who can propel real writing careers. 2003 marks the 7th annual screenplay competition. Since the inception of the awards, winning screenplays have been produced into full-length feature films, and other winners have been "optioned" for future production. Additionally, some winning writers are now well on their way to professional writing careers.

The Ohio Independent Screenplay Awards boasts a fair and seasoned judging process. Personal coverage and feedback from the judges will be available to every screenplay entrant. Finalists and winners are submitted to various Hollywood and NYC producers, literary agents, talent management companies and production companies, which can become a major step to a writing career. In addition, winners receive cash, magazines, software, professional screenplay reading, and representation/promotion by WritersScriptNetwork.com.

Deadlines for the 2003 Ohio Independent Screenplay Awards are: JUNE 1. Late entries will be accepted no later than JULY 1. Please call (216) 651-7315, email OhioIndieFilmFest@juno.com, or visit www.ohiofilms.com for screenplay entry information.
