The Austin Film Festival is looking for writers with strong voices who have the potential to establish a digital series. For its 22nd anniversary, the Austin fest is launching the Scripted Digital Series Competition. Both filmed and written submissions will be accepted with the goal of finding talented voices who can adapt their vision to emerging digital platforms. The 2015 fest will run from October 29-November 5.
Entrants that advance to the Semifinalist level will be asked to provide a treatment of their vision for the series and how subsequent episodes will unfold. The competition winner will receive a $1000 cash prize, AFF’s bronze typewriter statue, and reimbursement for travel and lodging. All filmed series finalists will be screened publicly at the 2015 Festival.
