Mission and Objective – The UK Film Festival is passionate about finding writers from all over the world with the ability to tell an effective story in a very short time. We hope we can help launch the careers of new writers and sustain the more established writers’ inspiration for their craft.
The Prizes - The winning script will receive best short script laurels and will be seriously considered for co-production by Irresistible Films and the UK Film Festival. It is worth noting that as outlined above the 2012 winning script MIKE by AJ Riley went into production and has recently won best short film at the Berlin Film Festival. It is now showing in Festivals all over the world and has landed a prestigious distribution deal. We are excited to announce that the 2013 winning script A CONFESSION by Andrea Allen is now in pre-production. The top 3 Scripts will be read by Susie Wright for Channel 4′s Creative Diversity. The very best film or films from the festival (as happened last year) may be considered for potential inclusion in an episode of Channel 4’s Shooting Gallery.
