Well, someone needs to open for The Who. Ginny Has a Grunge Band is an official selection to the 2017 Las Vegas International Screenwriting Competition, an event that takes place August 11th-13th. See: https://www.lviscreenwritingcompetition.com/2017-results.html
First, just to be clear, the title of this post rhymes. Australians pronounce “Brisbane” to rhyme with ten, or just swallow the last vowel altogether: BRIZ-b’n.
The screenplay Ginny Has a Grunge Band recently received a Top Ten Award from the Colortape International Film Festival, one of the largest events in the Asia-Pacific region.
Note to Ginny: Good onya! Bonzer! You, Viv, Marten, and Koos were just too right this time around.
A new collection featuring the following short short stories: “The Werewolf Who Found Inner Peace,” “The Witch Who Took a Look at Herself,” “The Hideous, Multi-Tentacled Relationship,” “Jonathan’s Smart Suit,” “The Princess Who Learned All-is-One,” “Two Boys Who Amounted to Nothing,” “Don’t Bother Me, I’m Working,” “Ordering Off the Menu,” “The Giant Who Practiced Kinhin,” “A Black Hole the Size of a Pea,” “Master of All,” and “The Old Man Who Lived in the Now.”
Proceeds from sales, including author royalties, are donated to nonprofit organizations to support worldwide literacy programs.
Lexington Blue won the Best Screenwriting Award at tonight’s Atlanta International Film Festival. The evening featured a red carpet meet-and-greet, ten short films from around the world, and an intermission show with performer Ray Rush. Many thanks to festival organizer Unique Wright for putting together this successful event.
Note to Mordechai and Hunny-J: Lexington Blue is the first screenplay for which I wrote the songs, and one of my influences was the Allman Brothers Band. So it was with sadness that we learned earlier today of the death of Gregg Allman.
June Update: In order to avoid some confusion with the Atlanta Film Festival (ATLFF), the AIFF recently changed its name to the Atlanta Award-Qualifying Film Festival (AAQFF).
The Atlanta International Film Festival will offer a free program of award-qualifying world shorts at the Plaza Theater on May 27th followed by a presentation ceremony.
“The spirit of the Atlanta International Film Festival is one of friendship and universal cooperation. Its aim is to focus attention on works of quality in order to contribute to the evolution of motion picture arts and encourage the development of the film industry throughout the world.”
