This year’s judges narrowed down the 9 semi-finalists to 3 finalists. The finalists are (in alphabetical order):
AND THE WINNER IS … by May Chaplin, THE LAST BUS RIDE by Deanna Perchyshyn, and WHAT YOU CAN SEE WITH THE NAKED EYE by David Erickson. Congratulations to our finalists!
SwW next sends these 3 finalist scripts to IFP-MN to be part of the Fresh Filmmakers Production Grant contest where directors hoping to win the contest will choose one script they wish to film, create and submit a production plan by the deadline of May 2nd. The winning proposal will then be filmed over the Summer. Therefore, in the end, only the ONE filmed script will be SwW’s 2012 Script-to-Screen winner and the other TWO will be runners-up!
The winning short will be viewed at SwW’s Annual Meeting in October.
