Rehearsed Readings of New Film Scripts
How often have you seen a new movie and wondered how a seemingly undercooked script ever made it to screen? All too often, scripts appear to have been filmed without extensive script development, leaving the audience as the final piece in a film's collaborative jigsaw. Until now.
ScreenPlay performs new film scripts, providing an opportunity for writers to hear their work, often for the very first time, coming to life in front of a live audience. This helps writers identify the strengths and weaknesses of their scripts within a supportive, peer-group atmosphere. From feature films, to shorts, to TV sitcoms, our previous events have included such artists as Michael Veitch, Alan Fletcher, Madeleine West, Marg Downey, Jay Bunyan, and such directors as Helen Gaynor, Jeremy Stanford, Steve Mann and Jan Sardi.
This regular program takes place in the ACMI Screen Pit.
