In this final round, we are inviting writers, filmmakers and all creatives to contribute and collaborate to make breathtaking short films that explore the Impact50 universe and final hours of humanity.
Watch and feedback on films submitted. The best will be edited into a world class feature film to be shown in theaters, online and on TV.
Scripts are not going to be judged during this phase, only the films made from them; only submitted films will be judged.
Write a two page script, or rewrite a previous entry, and submit to the challenge. You can read and offer feedback on submissions and also submit up to TWO redrafts of your script.
After which we enter final judging and editing.
The best films will be cut into a world class feature film for cinema, festivals, TV, steaming and online. Watch the phase one trailer below...
NOTE... As ALL scripts are available for production, and filmmakers can write their own scripts also, there will be no official 'winning scripts'.
So if you want to watch it, you will need to sign up above, which will also mean that you continue to get emails from us about The Impact as well as other Create50 Initiatives and other projects and courses.
Saying goodbye is as important as hearing it.
