It’s been said that “a picture speaks a thousand words” so there are not so many words in this post. We are one of five TV Dramas selected, and one of two 60 minute TV Dramas. Deep gratitude, and keep those happy thoughts for Thorn Trees flowing as the finalist selections will be soon!
Also, congratulations to Lili Bordan for achieving Best Director at the Cannes Artisan Festival International World Peace & Tolerance Initiative at Cannes Marché du Film for her “One Night Only” short film, and other awards there as well!
Jacob and I received a notification about the Thorn Trees script:
“We want to congratulate you on being a Quarter-Finalist in the 2021 Vail Screenplay Competition!”
We are one (1) of seven (7) selected in the Television One-Hour category. And one (1) of three (3) in the Television One-Hour DRAMA genre category!
Vail will announce the Semifinalists on July 23rd, and the winners during the first week in August.
Let’s all “think happy thoughts” that the script continues to progress. If not, that’s OK. We’re very happy to to have been chosen among who knows how many submissions as the number of screenplays being written is massive these days.
As some you know who are in this industry, winning selection status in film & TV screenplay competitions can attract cast, crew, investors and distributors.
Thanks to you ALL for your contributions to and/or interest in and support for Thorn Trees! We’ll keep you posted!
