In 2013 we had the massively enjoyable task of selecting an unproduced short film script that would win a table-read by acting students from the Central School of Speech and Drama. We were extremely impressed that winning script “Wings” was Catherine Wignall’s first script, and it has been a pleasure to keep in touch with her as she applies to film school and works on bigger screenplay projects.
Screenwriting is a peculiar craft all of its own. Short film, also requires particularly skilful handling. By acknowledging and rewarding female screenwriting talent in short film, UnderWire is accomplishing a rare and important mission – discovering unheard voices, and amplifying them. We can’t wait to see this year’s submissions!
Submission deadline is 31st July.
