Film news from New Hampshire's Alfred Thomas Catalfo
[We're always happy to share updates from New Hampshire's filmmakers--here's the latest news from our friend Alfred Thomas Catalfo:]
Here's our latest film news...
My new feature script, OIL AND WATER, which I wrote with Morgan Dudley, is one of the 7 finalists in the 2015 Nashville Film Festival Screenwriting Competition in the Drama category. Last year, I won the Action category and was the runner up in Drama with VULTURE'S ROW. OIL AND WATER, a true story in the tradition of Erin Brockovich, Argo and American Hustle, is also one of 24 semi-finalists out of 1,500+ submissions in the Fresh Voices Screenplay Competition in the Drama category, and one of 26 semi-finalists out of 2,000+ submissions in the Screencraft Screenwriting Competition.
I'm honored to be one of 16 screenwriters selected for a PAGE Fellowship at the Stowe Story Labs in Vermont. We'll have 5 days of workshops and one-on-one meetings with industry mentors including David Magee, Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Life of Pi.
Our next short film, A SPLIT TICKET, which I'm writing, producing and directing, will go before the cameras in April. A SPLIT TICKET is a Twilight Zone-ish story based on a true historical incident in which newly-minted congressmen John F. Kennedy (age 29) and Richard Nixon (age 34) travel to Pennsylvania in 1947 where they must make an eventful decision. We have a fantastic cast and crew and are very excited about our latest adventure. The film's Facebook page is www.facebook.com/asplitticket if you'd like to Like it.
As always, thank you for your encouragement and friendship.
