Oscar winning actor Adrian Brody has been named as a judge of The Bombay Sapphire Imagination Series Film Competition. Bombay Sapphire Gin has teamed up with the Tribeca Film Festival to offer film makers the chance to have their own short film made.
The Bombay Sapphire Imagination Series: Film competition, in association with the Tribeca Film Festival, is now in its second year and is sparking people’s imagination by offering them the chance to have their own short film made through interpreting a script written by Academy Award winning screenwriter Geoffrey Fletcher.
You can visit www.imaginationseries.com to view Geoffrey Fletcher’s script and submit your imaginative film concepts based on this script. The films deemed the most imaginative will go into production and each winner can be involved in the production of their film alongside world-class talent, as well as see their version of Fletcher’s script brought to life on the big screen.
The competition will close on 4 August 2013, where Adrien Brody, Geoffrey Fletcher and a panel of experts from the Tribeca Film Festival will shortlist the four most imaginative ideas to go into production.
The panel will shortlist a further five ideas to go forward to a public vote, the winner of which will also go into production. All five films will then be premiered in Tribeca the following year, in April 2014.
Academy Award winner Brody says, “I was a wild, mischievous kid and I had tremendous imagination. Any experience I had, I’d try to re-enact it. I always had an actor within me and I feel extremely passionate to be able to work with Bombay Sapphire on this competition. Imagination really can take you anywhere and is so subjective, so I eagerly anticipate people’s interpretation of Geoffrey’s script and look forward to embarking on this incredible journey with them.”
Geoffrey Fletcher comments on his involvement, “I’m honoured to be part of this special creative journey with Bombay Sapphire gin for a second year. The calibre and creativity from past finalists was astounding and has set an inspirational benchmark for this year’s competition.”
“We are proud to continue our association with a brand who embraces creativity and imagination the way Bombay Sapphire does. The competition is a fantastic way for filmmakers all over the world to express their imagination. We are excited to see where their imagination takes them,” adds Jon Patricof, President of Tribeca Enterprises.
“The Imagination Series script entry deadline has been extended for two more weeks and the new deadline is 18th August 2013 11.59pm (GMT).
