MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The Fade In Awards were established in 1996 to assist talented new writers and writer/directors with getting recognized within the Hollywood community in order to begin a career as a working filmmaker.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
OUR WINNERS WORK! In fact, no other screenplay/short competition has as many success stories [sans the Nicholl's]:

* After Jon Bokenkamp entered his thriller "Preston Tylk," he signed with ICM, he was hired to write a feature for director William Friedkin, has since directed "Tylk" and sold his documentary "After Sunset" to AMC, wrote features for Julia Roberts, Halle Berry ("Perfect Stranger"), and Angelina Jolie ("Taking Lives").
* After Josh Gordin and Will Speck entered their short "Culture," both signed with ICM, "Culture" was nominated for an Academy Award™ and they directed Will Ferrell in "Blades of Glory."
* After Darryl Wimberley entered his noir Kaleidoscope, he signed with ICM. He now has a two-book deal with St. Martin's Press and Kaleidoscope has also been published as a novel.
* After George Olson entered his script "Tesla," he signed with Endeavor.
* After Grant Jerkins entered his project "An American Crime," we gave it to Fade In Advisory Board member, Oscar-nominated screenwriter Nick Kazan who, along with writer Terry Curtis Fox, adapted it for the screen. Oscar-nominated director Barbet Schroeder is attached to helm.
* After Mike Murphy entered his script "Clackers," he landed an option and within months began filming. Now titled "Javelina," you can look for Murphy's film in theatres soon.
* After Matt Krentz and Vernon Whitlock entered their action franchise, "The Blaze Brothers," they signed with APA and landed a deal with American Original Entertainment.
* After Frank Baldwin entered his genre film, he signed with the William Morris Agency [WME], landed writing assignments with Sony Pictures and director Sam Raimi, DreamWorks and director Philip Noyce, and Paramount and director Pierre Morel.
* After Mike Walsh entered his screenplay, he signed with Ken Sherman & Associates and optioned two projects.
* After Howard Kingkade entered his short, "Hole in the Paper Sky," the script was produced starring Jessica Biel, Gary Marshall and Jason Clarke.
* After James R. Rothenberg entered his script, "The Last Resort," he signed with Original Artists.
* After Haven Turleygood entered his genre film "Irish," he signed with Endeavor and landed a writing assignment with Arnold Kopelson and another with Joel Silver.
* After Matt Healy entered his dark comedy "Clay Pigeons," Healy signed with ICM, "Pigeons" was produced by Ridley and Tony Scott with David Dobkin directing and Healy landed a two-picture deal with Warner Bros.
* After Max Mayer entered his drama "Adam," he directed and sold the film at the Sundance Film Festival to Fox Searchlight. The film played in theatres to rave reviews.
* After Eric Howell entered his short "Ana's Playground," he signed with UTA and Anonymous Content. Now he's shooting his first feature in Paris.
