My Citizen Jane Film Festival Day 1 Re-Cap

October 31st, 2017 Comments off

I must admit I am a little bleary-eyed as I type, but it is all because my day at the Citizen Jane Film Festival was full to the brim with great people, great experiences, and great information. While films are certainly the focus of Citizen Jane, the CJ Film School day was all about learning.Screen Grab: From Screenplay To Big Screen, Who Will Win?

The morning started with “Screen Grab,” during which 5 screenwriting finalists were selected to give their pitches for 5-minute films to a panel of filmmaking experts, including Sarah Haas, Steph Scupham, Kimberly Skyrme and Ken LaZebnik, Director of the Stephens College MFA in Screenwriting program which operates out of Los Angeles. The winner of Screen Grab will have their film produced, receive a $250 award, and also receive a table read by the local Greenhouse Theatre Project on the last day of the Festival.
