BFaT WINS at the 2018 MELBOURNE INDEPENDENT FILMMAKERS FESTIVAL
"The Model" won Best Overall Production at the Melbourne Independent Filmmakers Festival October 20, 2018! This marks the third year BFT has entered the Tie Up Loose Ends Contest and has brought home one or more awards each year.
The contest required the producers to create an ending for an unfinished script (also chosen through the competition) by award winning screenwriter, Eric Emerick. The completed film was must portray each director's view of the opening scenes, as written, along with the newly created ending AND credits in a run time of no more than 5 minutes. Films are judged on overall cinematic technique and the uniqueness of their endings.
KUDOs to BFT members EDDIE CRAIG and ERIC EMERICK for thei entry into the same contest.
Their film (of the same title) won the award for BEST ENDING for their hilariously funny conclusion.
CONGRATULATIONS to all involved in these projects!
Kudos also to BFT member, Jennifer Frandsen for winning the screenwriters portion of the 2019 MIFF Tie Up Loose Ends Contest with her script, Behind Closed Doors. For the 2nd part of the contest, filmmakers will take her script -- which has no ending -- write an ending and produce a 5 minute or less film for submission to the contest. Awards will be given for Best Ending and Best Overall Film. If you'd like to film an entry, the script can be found by clicking the title above. Rules are on the HERE. Good luck!
