Rome Creative Contest 2018

A COMPETITION FOR EMERGING AUTHORS

The Screenplay Contest is a competition whereby emerging authors pitch ideas for a 5-minute short film and on a topical theme.

The challenge is that participants have just 8 hours to write an original script. Winning entries are then given the opportunity to work with production company Image Hunters, and in collaboration with YOURBAN2030, Rai Cinema, Laser Film, Redigital, Luxor, and Officinema.

The first editions

The Screenplay Contest has grown thanks to the great collaboration with partners such as Rai Cinema and Laser Film. As a result of this, more and more young authors are able to express themselves through creatively ambitious short films.

In 2018, the competition aims to reach new goals with new partners: YOURBAN, Officinema, Redigital, Luxor and Wonderlab.

ART AS AN IMAGE OF THE FUTURE

More than ever before, we are facing some very important challenges. Climate change, environmental degradation, pollution, overbuilding, and importantly the risk of extinction of endangered animals: these are just some of the most critical subjects that artists from across the world have explored through their art, which reflects the state of our generation while inspiring audiences to consider a more sustainable future.
