One of many highlights of EEFF this year is the VIBE LOUNGE FILMMAKERS CENTRE, a cinematic chill-out space hosting a variety of events including a party and screening. On 22nd April from 3pm Film & Festivals will be hosting its first filmmakers Surgery there.

About Scriptapalooza:

The Scriptapalooza Screenwriting Competition, was founded in 1998, and has generated heat, publicity and a reputation that demands respect. Scriptapalooza, Inc., along with its various divisions was created to nurture talent and create opportunities.
Storytellers come from all over the world and from all walks of life, because of the simple fact that everyone has a story. Scriptapalooza's goal: to seek out that storyteller and honor their script with a grand prize of $10,000. Each year dozens
of production companies and literary representatives sign on as participants to read our winners, resulting in many scripts being optioned, sold or outright bought.
