SHOWFILMFIRST CometitionIf you’ve got a great idea for a film now is your time! (to enter)  SHOWFILMFIRST’s competition. Write your own Film Treatment and Win a year’s Cineworld Unlimited Pass. As a means of encouraging new and a greater diversity of screen writing talent in the UK, SHOWFILMFIRST (in collaboration with Metrodome and Film London) was delighted to host their first LONDON SCREENWRITING WORKSHOP on Saturday, July 21.

After completing the programme, SHOWFILMFIRST are inviting participants to enter a competition to write a “film treatment”; (that is a brief outline, no more than a single page) for an idea for a movie. All entrants will be read by a panel of film industry experts and the authors of the best 20 “treatments” will be given to Metrodome to read and select the winner.

 The treatments will all be read by professional script readers and the winner will be chosen from a shortlist, by Metrodome. The winner, as chosen by Metrodome will be the treatment with most potential, in their opinion, to be developed, will get a year’s unlimited card for Cineworld so you can see as many films as you like for the next year!

 Who knows, Metrodome may even want to work with you to develop it! (no guarantees though!)

What is a Film Treatment A treatment is a written condensation of a proposed film. It needs to persuade the reader that this project needs to be made. Treatments should be attention-grabbing and interesting to read. They are usually written in the present tense and tend to read like a short story.
