Screenwriters Workshop Announces 2008 ScreenLabs Challenge

Screenwriters Workshop is pleased to announce the guidelines for the 2008 Screenlabs Challenge! This years theme is “Agony and bliss: Unrequited love.” This should be an integral theme that runs through each submitted film/video. As with last years ScreenLabs Challenge, we require a particular location be included in all completed films/videos. For 2008 filmmakers must include the “Witch’s Hat” water tower in Prospect Park, Minneapolis, as a location.

Screenwriters Workshop designed ScreenLabs as a filmmaking development program, intended to foster collaboration among writers, directors, producers, talent and crew through bringing original scripts to the screen. The Challenge was started in 2007 as a contest to empower screenwriters to produce their own scripts.

Submitted works will be judged by a panel of jurors who are film/video artists and professionals. Winners will be awarded the following cash prizes:

First Place – $1,000
Second Place – $500
Best Screenplay – $250
Audience Award – $250

Completed films/videos must be received at the IFP Minnesota Center for Media Arts no later than 4:00pm on Friday, August 15, 2008,
