Catalfo Wins Best Action Script at Fade In Screenwriting Awards

LOS ANGELES, CA -- "Vulture's Row," a full-length, feature film script written by Alfred Thomas Catalfo of Dover, New Hampshire, was the Winner of the Best Action Script category in the 18th Annual Fade In Awards, a worldwide screenwriting competition sponsored by film industry publication Fade In magazine.

I'm truly honored to have my script selected," Catalfo said.  "The Fade In Awards has a great reputation within the industry as a showcase for well-crafted scripts and up-and-coming writers."

"Vulture's Row" was also the Winner in the Thriller category and Runner Up in the Drama category in the 2014 Nashville Film Festival Screenwriting Competition, which had 1,511 entries.  The script was the Grand Prize Winner in the Rhode Island International Film Festival Screenwriting Competition, and a Top 20 finalist out of more than 2,500 submissions in the Slamdance Film Festival Screenwriting Competition.

"Vulture's Row" is based on the novel "Betrayed" by Brendan DuBois of Exeter, New Hampshire.  The story involves a small-town newspaper editor who answers the door in the middle of the night to find a disheveled man who claims to be his older brother -- an Air Force pilot shot down over North Vietnam and reported Missing In Action more than forty years earlier.

Catalfo, an attorney, has written and directed seven short films.  Three of his films recently screened at Boston Comic Con in August while another, "Rocketship," made its New York debut at the Coney Island Film Festival in September.
