NCTV is pleased to present the 2017 Thru the Lens: A Script to Silver Screen Event (formally Foothill Films). This script-to-filmmaking competition, a fundraiser for Nevada County Television (NCTV), is open to all Nevada County residents. This is a short script/short film competition. Submitted scripts may not exceed ten pages type written; 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. Eightscripts will be selected from our general category and five from the youth (“5 MinuteFlick”) category. Winning scripts are announced in 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.
