The 2014 Virginia Screenwriting Competition  is accepting email applications thru 5/23. It was established by the VFO in 1988 to showcase the work of Virginia writers and encourage the development of scripts that could be shot in Virginia. $1000 is given to each of the 3 finalists and all entries receive a written evaluation from the first round judges. No entrance fee.

 

Last week, Governor McAuliffe signed HB-460. which allocates 13 million dollars in tax credits for production in Virginia.  The next step is the GMPOF fund,  which is the grant program used in conjunction with the tax credit. With the Medicaid debate currently taking place those funds are in limbo. Details from Terry Stroud, Chair/VPA Legislative Affairs in the future.

 

 “Turn” (shot in Virginia) debuted on AMC last week and the ratings were strong. The pilot is available for free download on iTunes, Amazon, and Vudu..
