HOW IT WORKED:
In round one, all competitors submitted a pitch video along with a written pitch or treatment for their dream feature film. After the submissions were narrowed to the Top 10, the judging panel selected the Top 4 finalists. All finalists had to then submit their scripts for round two of judging. Judges then selected the Grand Prize Winner from the Final 4 scripts. Simultaneously, we conducted online voting for the best pitch video to determine the Online Winner.
