Come join the celebration of great film and great stories at the 17th annual Nantucket Film Festival and Screenplay Competition!
Film submissions are eligible for an array of awards, including the Adrienne Shelly Excellence in Filmmaking Award that honors the outstanding achievement by a female filmmaker with a $5,000 cash prize, the Showtime Tony Cox Award for Screenwriting in a short and feature film, Best Storytelling in a Documentary, Best Writer/Director, and the Audience Award.
The screenplay competition provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to participate in the Screenwriters Colony, an annual month-long retreat where writers are encouraged to find their voice and push the boundaries of their craft under the guidance of established film professionals, an all-expense paid trip to the Festival in June, and a $5,000 cash prize. All competition finalists are invited to a Mentor's Brunch where they can discuss their projects with NFF's annual Screenwriters Tributee.
Nantucket Film Festival will be from June 20-June 24, 2012.
