Dallas International Film Festival and Torfoot Films Announce “Script to Screen” Competition

Dallas International Film Festival, Torfoot Films and Event Horizon Films launch short film script competition with guaranteed production and premiere at DIFF

DALLAS, TEXAS, US, July 15, 2021 / -- Dallas International Film Festival (DIFF), Torfoot Films and platform-partner Event Horizon Films have joined forces to give one talented screenwriter the opportunity to see their short film script come to life on the big screen.

The winning short script of the “Script to Screen” competition will be directed, developed and produced by award-winning director Johnathan Brownlee at Torfoot Films. Additional producing partners include, Event Horizon Films, IdeaMan Studios and legal partners, Litwin Law Group, PLLC, and The Law Office of LaToya L. Blakely.

“We had the opportunity to develop, produce and theatrically release the feature film, ‘Three Days in August,’ in a similar way a few years ago and I thought it would be exciting to do this again with a short film,” said Johnathan Brownlee, founder of Torfoot Films. “Most screenplays never get produced, let alone get a World Premiere at a major film festival like DIFF. I’m looking forward to directing the winning script.”

Event Horizon Films is managing the script competition which, like its other competitions, are judged by readers from the industry’s top talent agencies and management companies, giving screenwriters the added value of high-profile industry experts reviewing and critiquing their work.

Script submissions must be 10 pages or under and set in a single location. DIFF and Event Horizon Films are accepting screenplay entries HERE, now through midnight on Aug. 27, 2021.
