Writers and Filmmakers.com

Imagine a world where film funding was decided by the community! I've created a wonderful platform for writers and filmmakers to judge each other's work and fund the best!  It's simple, Writers judge filmmakers and filmmakers judge writers! The winning writer gets their script made by the winning filmmaker and we fund it with the entry fees. Writers and filmmakers have a vested interest in finding the best of the other group! The filmmakers want the best script and the writers want the best filmmaker to shoot their film if it wins!! We went to TIFF with the idea and everyone I met loved it! We made connections with the Irish Film Board who gave us the thumbs up by agreeing that if an Irish FIlmmaker Wins the competition, they will provide non financial consultation (we provide the funding). Were were on Fox just last week (Dec 29th)! And we are still in talks with partnering with the Seattle Film Festival!
