Competition was tough, with 60 applications received from a diverse range of writers. After all applications were read blind, 13 projects made a competitive shortlist and selectors made the final decisions last week.
Writers will work on their projects with local and international talent, including the recently announced Gyula Gazdag - Artistic Director of the Sundance Filmmakers Lab and others soon to be announced.
