Winning Screenplay – REBEKAH’S CLOSET
Written by Amy Malinda JacksonCAST LIST:

NARRATOR – Frances Townend
REBEKAH – Kayla Farris
LITTLE GIRL 1 – Vanessa Quagliara
JACK – Peter Mark Raphael
LARRY – Jonah Akler-Silliman
RUPERT – Christopher Huron

SYNOPSIS:

Genre: Romance, Drama

Rebekah is writing on her memoir Rebekah’s Closet when she begins to hear voices in her head, have flashbacks of Viet Nam, but her lover Rupert hears her make a sound and comes to encourage her to love again.

Get to know the writer:

What is your screenplay about?

Rebekah’s Closet is about a young American woman living in Paris who grapples with the psychological ramifications of her childhood abuse.

What genres does your screenplay fall under?

Drama, Psychological Thriller, Love Story, Fantasy

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

It is based on my true story of growing up with horrific abuse, and transforming into an artist and writer, into a loving person somehow, after all. It didn’t have to end up that way, especially considering what was done.

How would you describe this script in two words?

Gritty, inspiring.

What movie have you seen the most times in your life?

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

One year. It is based on a novel that took a decade.

How many stories have you written?

Maybe ten. But there are so many that are in my head, wanting to come out, in some form. And dreams, wanting to be written.

What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?)

The Rolling Stones: I’m a Monkey. I don’t play it, but I want it played at my funeral. As a joke. For real.

https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=rolling+stones+i’m+a+monkey+lyrics&*

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Determining what pieces of the massive story to put in, what to leave out. How to tell my story, ultimately. It’s so hard. I’m still figuring it out, actually. I have to rewrite.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Gardening, painting jungles in acrylic, doing industrial photographs that look like abstract paintings, LOVING people wherever I go (I’m a Buddhist), community advocacy where I live (I live in a disadvantaged neighborhood where we are restoring a Victorian home), yoga, mindfulness, cooking and baking.

What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?

I want to get my stories out there. I don’t want my stories, like my paintings or photographs, to be in a closet, but to be outside. For so long I had to keep everything secret, for so long I couldn’t talk or know what had happened, but now I know the whole sequence of events. That is a major life changing event, to know the truth, for me. Secondly, I’ve not only survived, but my counselor says that I am an inspiration, that my story can help other people. Maybe the script isn’t there yet, but I’m committed to getting it there. Thirdly, I wanted to be a writer growing up, and it wasn’t allowed. I want to be a screenwriter. I want to learn this craft. It’s like a strange puzzle me, that I’m trying to figure out, at the same time that I’m trying to tell my stories, to get them out of the darkness.

Max Thackara – March 2017 SHORT Screenplay Winner

Winning Screenplay – MILKSHAKE
Written by Max ThackaraCAST LIST:

NARRATOR – Val Cole
TEDDY – Dan Cristofori
WAITRESS – Cassandra Guthrie
ALICE – Jane Hailes

SYNOPSIS:

Genre: Romance, Drama

A young couple have an awkward meet in a 50s diner.
Get to know the writer:

What is your screenplay about?

It is a short script about a relationship between two young lovers, very much a cliché!

What genres does your screenplay fall under?

Romance

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

This short script I believe would make an excellent and very emphatic short film for its use of music and soft tone.

How would you describe this script in two words?

Bitter sweet.

What movie have you seen the most times in your life?

Probably ‘Step Brothers’

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

I wrote this short script over a few days after having the idea/setting in mind for a while.

How many stories have you written?

As I haven’t been writing for long I am working on a number of scripts ideas at the moment, but have also written probably 3 or 4 short stories I’m proud of.

What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?)

Starman (David Bowie)

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

I was unsure of the ending and how I wanted the story to unfold, but I have since changed it rather a lot with an ending I now feel is much more appropriate.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

I was unsure of the ending and how I wanted the story to unfold, but I have since changed it rather a lot with an ending I now feel is much more appropriate.

What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?

I entered the festival as I believed this was one of my best short scripts. The feedback was brilliant and influenced me in the rewrite I completed recently. I was thrilled to be selected as obviously a lot of this is subjective, also it hopefully confirmed that my writing isn’t as awful as it was 6 months ago!
