SODEC is holding another "Sprint for your Script / Cours écrire ton court" competition for Montreal-based young creators. (Young means up to 35.) Goodies galore.
COURS ÉCRIRE TON COURT ! will give the selected screenwriters the benefits of taking part in truly unique scriptwriting workshops. In the charming atmosphere of the Old Dawes Brewery at the Guy-Descaries cultural complex in Lachine, between mid-September and mid-October 2006 they will be paired off with advisory screenwriters whose involvement is backed by SARTEC and CBC Television. The writers will participate in intensive individual and group work sessions and discussions.

When the final drafts of the screenplays are completed in October, a five-member panel made up of Télé-Québec and SODEC representatives, a screenwriter representing SARTEC, a director and a producer, will select the winning scripts for:

· the SODEC/Télé-Québec/Kodak Award consisting of a $55,000 investment in production by SODEC, $2,000 worth of Kodak movie film and a broadcast license from Télé-Québec as well as the $5,000 screenwriting award from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec;

· the SARTEC Special Mention consisting of a $1,000 prize for a French script;

· the $1,000 CBC/WGC Prize for the Best English Script.

In addition, the finalists’ seven scripts will be read publicly by professional actors at a reading sponsored by Christal Films, which has agreed to distribute the film made from the winning script theatrically. [snip]

This contest is only open to screenwriters and coauthors who qualify for SODEC’s assistance program for young creators. (For program details, visit SODEC’s website at www.sodec.gouv.qc.ca )

Proposals must be submitted by individuals, not companies. Only one entry per person allowed. Proposals may be submitted in English or French.

Writers must:

• Be between the ages of 18 and 35 (not have turned 36 at the time of submitting the script);
• Have embarked on a professional writing career (high school, college and university undergraduate and graduate students are not eligible);
• Have had a drama script produced and publicly released or broadcast (proof required);
• Have lived in Québec for at least two years;
• Be available between September 12th and October 22th, 2006;
• Send SODEC all the required entry material.

N.B.: Writers who want to direct their own film must have at least one professional credit as director of a film that was publicly released film (i.e. festivals, broadcasters, museums, etc.; student and Kino screenings do not count).
Check out their site. Deadline for applications is August 15.
