Screamfest Announces First Look Deal with Chiller
The screenplay deadline has been extended until JUNE 15TH due to this exciting news:
The 13th annual Screamfest Horror Film Festival & Screenplay Competition announces a first look deal with Chiller, a division of NBCuniversal for the winner of this year’s contest.
“We are very excited to offer this great opportunity to this year’s winning screenplay.” founder/festival director Rachel Belofsky said. Chiller’s senior director or programming, Shane O’Brien, said, "Chiller has always valued the dramatic weight that well-crafted screenplays contribute to the horror genre. We're thrilled to offer the opportunity to work with and nurture talented up-and-coming screenwriters.”
Screamfest Horror Film Festival takes place Oct. 8th – 17th, 2013 in Los Angeles. The winning screenplay will be announced on October 17th on the closing night of the festival.
Screamfest Horror Film Festival was founded in 2001 to give up-and-coming filmmakers and writers a venue to showcase their work. Screamfest provides a great opportunity for them to have their work discovered just as Oren Peli, director and producer of Paranormal Activity, was discovered through his Paranormal Activity entry.
