People are invited to view the script at and put forward their own innovative film concepts. The most exciting and imaginative ideas will go into full production with each winner involved in the production of their own film. They will see the film industry’s top talent bring their film to life in celluloid form.

The competition closes on 4th August 2013 when a panel will shortlist the four most creative concepts to go forward into production. The judges will include Geoffrey Fletcher and a panel of industry finest including renowned actor Adrien Brody who was awarded an Oscar for Best Actor for his performance in Roman Polanski’s The Pianist. The public will get to vote to decide the fifth winner and all will then go into full production. The five films will then be presented at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2014.

Geoffrey Fletcher comments on his involvement, “I’m honoured to be part of this special creative journey with Bombay Sapphire gin for a second year.  The calibre and creativity from past finalists was astounding and has set an inspirational benchmark for this year’s competition.”
