Film chance for Norfolk scriptwriters

A call is going out to scriptwriters to submit their best efforts for a county wide competition which will see the best effort turned into a film.

The Norfolk Video Productions 2011 Screenplay Competition is looking for scripts for a fiction film that last between 10 and 30 minutes that can be filmed in Norfolk.

Peter Holdroyd, who writes, produces and edits locally-made movies, and organises the competition, says, 'There are many writers, both published and unpublished, in Norfolk, and the NVP Screenplay Competition is an opportunity to write for the screen, which many don't normally do.'

He added that it is one of the parameters of the competition is that writers should use locations they know about and can obtain permission to film at.

The purpose of the film is to enter it in the British International Amateur Film Festival 2012, which is conducted under the auspices of the IAC – the Film and Video Institute. The IAC represents amateur film makers in Britain. The judging panel will include Keiron Pim, a writer for the Eastern Daily Press and Norwich Evening News.
