Filmmakers Brunch: Screenplay Table Read

Sunday, August 7
Foundation Room

Instead of a lecture or product demo, this year’s Filmmakers Brunch features a table read of The Secret Notes of Professor Thomas, which won our first Plaza Classic Film Festival Screenwriting Competition, sponsored by the El Paso Film and Creative Industries Commission and Final Draft 12. We received screenplays from the East Coast, West Coast and local writers. The winning entry was written by Joni Ravenna of Palm Springs, CA, and Joshua Townshend-Zellner of Los Angeles. Area actors, under the direction of coordinator Austin Savage, will read the screenplay. The winners receive $500, Final Draft 12 software, and a consultation with Hollywood’s Impossible Dream Entertainment, founded by Shaun Redick and El Paso native Yvette Yates Redick, whose credits include Jamie Foxx’s new Day Shift, Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansmen and Jordan Peele’s Get Out. — Doug Pullen
