A group of semi-finalists, chosen from among the primary submissions, will be asked to submit a completed screenplay of the film project they would like to direct next. The Review Committee will then pick four winners one grand prize winner and three runner-ups. The Grand Prize winner will receive an opportunity to pitch their film to select industry executives in California and New York. If the project does not receive a â€˜green light,â€™ then they will receive $75,000 and other support from the FilmFilm management team for the production of their film.
