The 2nd Annual GOTHAM SCREEN Film Festival and Screenplay Contest is now open for submissions.

Following the success of the 2007 edition, this year’s event has been expanded to showcase short and feature films during two days of screenings.

Gotham Screen is looking for fresh voices and perspectives from local, national and international filmmakers. The screenplay contest comes with a $2,500 cash prize, and excerpts from selected contest entries will be performed live at a staged reading.
