An Unparalleled Table Read Experience
With a professional table read, the Grand Prize Winner will gain insight into their script from a working director and trained actors as it is rehearsed and performed, then showcased for an audience. This is how Oscar-winning writers tighten their story, sharpen their dialogue and fine tune pacing, character and other important elements of their latest projects. Past winners have been staffed, premiered at Cannes and been nominated for an Oscar among other successes. Six Genre Winners will receive $1000 cash each and meet with an exec from UTAGramercy Park120E FilmsCircle of Confusion and more to be announced.
