Ohio Independent Screenplay Awards Announced

Cleveland, Ohio-Winners finally announced of the 2001 Ohio Independent Screenplay Awards (OISA), our 5th annual screenplay competition. Please join us at the 2001 Ohio Independent Film Festival & Market, November 6 at 8p for the presentation of this year's awards.

The winner of the Best Screenplay Award is MELTON PORCINI, a political satire by Jack Kilpatrick. The winner of the Best Northcoast Screenplay Award, which we created three years ago to specifically promote Northern Ohio as a feature film shooting location, is CHINESE BABY, a drama by Mollie Jones.

The Ohio Independent Screenplay Awards introduce aspiring writers to the professionals who can facilitate real writing careers. 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. Among the OISA prizes are: $1,000 cash to each winner, subscriptions to Scr(i)pt Magazine, representation by WritersScriptNetwork.com, submission to film industry professionals (e.g., producers, production companies, talent agencies, etc.), and a reading at Script Mill, our professional Screenplay Reading Program.

The winning screenplay presented this year at Script Mill is MELTON PORCINI, a political satire about a man who doesn't want to be President but becomes just that with a little help from the mob. Script Mill is a "movie in your imagination;" it is a raw and unstaged performance, but professionally directed and cast. Guided by a narrator, these readings are an important and innovative tool for screenwriters to road-test a screenplay's dialogue and timing in front of a live audience. Script Mill and other awards will be presented at the 2001 Ohio Independent Film Festival & Market on November 6 at 8p at Cleveland Public Theatre, 6415 Detroit Road.

We are very pleased this year to welcome director and actor Ernest Hemmings as our Script Mill director. He is the writer and director for the subversive sketch comedy group The Human Zoo, and is a graduate of the School of Performing and Visual Arts as well as the Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Arts. Mr. Hemmings has worked across Pennsylvania, New York, and Ohio.
