Some more news to share…


According to Demetria Carr, RIIFF Managing Director, “Screenplay judges poured through 324 screenplay entries this year, the largest entry base in the competition’s history. Each submission was analyzed and scored according to a set of five criteria, including Character, Dialogue, Setting, Plot and Technique.

“After extensive reading and deliberation among the judges, ten prizewinners were chosen in five different categories: Main Competition, Gay and Lesbian (GLBT), Local (New England) Focus, Horror, and Short Screenplay,” she added. Each will come with its own set of awards.”

Now… if only these laurel leaves can turn into cold hard cash. Maybe if I put them under my pillow?
