Calling all Screenwriters!
CaribbeanTales 2012 @ Island Inn, in collaboration with the National Cultural Foundation and the Bridgetown Film Academy, announces the 3rd annual “Script2Screen” Screenplay reading series.
In 2010, Script2Screen hosted a workshop reading of acclaimed novellist Oonya Kempadoo’s screenplay TIDE RUNNING based on her award winning novel of the same name, and directed by US-based Jamaican film director Karen Williams.
In 2011, CaribbeanTales and Caribbean Island Film hosted readings of 3 short original scripts from the GROWING UP CARIBBEAN series of films produced by Penny Hynam and Beatrice Hallenbarter, and directed by filmmakers Alison Saunders, Penny Hynam and Maharaki.
This year Script2Screen will take the form of a Screenwriting Clinic, aimed at improving the skills of emerging screen writers.
