This was so much fun – October 2012!
For the 12th Annual Shriekfest in Los Angeles, we’re super happy to be on board with a special prize in the Screenwriting category that has never been offered before:
Best Bechdel Test Passing Horror Screenplay
You can have the prestige of being the first writer to earn this title, along with other prizes such as full professional notes on your screenplay + marketing strategy ($200 value), signed items from Twisted Twins Productions (Jen & Sylvia Soska) and more that we’ll be announcing soon.
For your chance to make your mark and seal your place in Shriekfest history and possibly Hollywood history, go HERE. Please specify that you’re entering for the general contest and also for “The Bitch Pack Award”. If you’ve already entered, you’ll be automatically in the running for this special award.
To qualify, your horror screenplay has to have a scene where two named female characters talk about something other than a man- this can be a monster, a ghost, an alien, math, science, spooky weather conditions, how their day went, their hopes and fears– you name it. Simple, right?
Newline Cinema and Groundswell Productions are putting out a Bechdel Test passing Horror Comedy film called The Final Girls written by Mark Fortin and Josh Miller who are represented by CAA and Mosaic Media. If they can write something that passes, you can too. Todd Strauss-Schulson of A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas is directing.
DEADLINES: May 22. Late entry date July 10
Wouldn’t this look great on your website and press pack?
