OXIFF2018 Uncommissioned Screenplay Shortlist

Oxford International Film Festival is delighted to announce the two screenplays that have been shortlisted for the 2018 uncommissioned screenplay award.

Empathic by John Burdeaux

A young boy accompanies his physician father on morning rounds on the hospice floor of a hospital... and an innocent game of hide-and-seek leads him to the brink of a disturbing revelation.

Reality by Wendy Braff

When a married British television director breaks up with the girlfriend he doesn't know is pregnant, she devises a scheme to keep him part of her life by hiring an actor to pose as the babies father and secure them the lead on the director's reality show about expectant couples.

The winner will be announced at the festivals closing night awards ceremony on Sunday 13th May.
