NCTV is pleased to present the 2017 Thru the Lens: A Script to Silver Screen Event (formally Foothill Films). This short script/short film script-to-filmmaking competition is a fundraiser for Nevada County Television (NCTV) and is open to all Nevada County residents.
Submitted scripts may not exceed ten pages typewritten; the resulting films made from these scripts may not exceed ten minutes and zero seconds. New this year is a “5 Minute Flick” category for middle school through high school students. 5 Minute Flick scripts may not exceed five pages, typed; the resulting films may not exceed five minutes & zero seconds. Screenplay submissions will be evaluated by a panel of judges consisting of area professionals from the entertainment and digital/print media industries. Eight scripts will be selected from our general category and five from the youth (“5 MinuteFlick”) category. Winning scripts are announced on May 1, 2017. Then, Thru the Lens kicks into full filmmaking mode as the authors of the winning scripts are assigned the challenging and rewarding task of self-producing their films over the summer. Completed films will be showcased at a red carpet screening in October. Although not mandatory, Nevada County Television encourages themes that explore NevadaCounty’s environment, culture, and history. Please print this entry form, complete, and snail mail to our address above.

The Thru the Lens Red Carpet Event is Sunday, October 1st.
