Call for Screenplays: 2005 Ohio Independent Screenplay Awards

The Ohio Independent Screenplay Awards introduce aspiring writers to the professionals who can propel real writing careers. "…my script received more industry exposure than I got from other contests I've won or placed in," states Rich Figel, winner of the Best Voice of Color Screenplay Award for his script INUGAMI. Over the years, winning screenplays have been optioned, other winners have been produced into full-length feature films; additionally, some winning writers are now well on their way to professional writing careers. "I've gotten such personal, individualized attention from Independent Pictures, I'm certain that same attitude will be reflected in the attention I get from potential producers as a result of my win," says Lily Mariye, winner of the Best of Voice of Color Screenplay Award for her script THE SHANGRI-LA CAFE. The 2005 Ohio Independent Screenplay Awards marks Independent Pictures' 9th annual screenplay competition and boasts a seasoned judging process.

Personal coverage and feedback from programmers and readers on your screenplay will be available to every screenplay entrant. Exclaims writer Ken Johnson of the coverage and feedback, "Loved it. May be more valuable than the screenplay competition itself." Writers Joe Amato & Kass Fleisher add, "This is a tough industry to break into and we found your insights especially useful." Finalists and winners are awarded submission to Hollywood and NYC producers, talent management companies and production companies-the introduction to a real writing career. On top of all that, winners receive even more- including representation/promotion by www.InkTip.com. Declares Spiro Skentzos, winner of the Best Screenplay Award for his script THREE MILE FAMILY, "It was great to finally find a screenplay competition that rewards smaller, character-orientated films over mainstream Hollywood ideas."

Deadlines (postmarked by) to submit screenplays for the 2005 screenplay competition are: June 10; July 7 (late). Please call (216) 651-7315, email OhioIndieFilmFest@juno,com, or visit www.ohiofilms.com for screenplay, film and video entry information.
