2013 Joshua Tree - 09

We have some exciting news from the Academy Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting Competition regarding our female-driven Western UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY… We placed in the top 10% out of 7,251 entries (473-727)! We’re absolutely thrilled, and have received some great feedback from Slamdance as well (check it out here), so we’ll go ahead and mark this as a success! Looking forward to the rewriting process, and beginning packaging for the film in June 2014.
