During the OFF we now do a Writers Theatre aspect of our screenplay competition, which means we have local actors read sections of the screenplays that are finalists to an audience. It is a great experience for the screenwriters who can attend the festival to experience it.
Prizes will be announced later this year. They typically include software, Oakley sunglasses, and for local writers: a free admission to Lew Hunter's Screenwriting Colony.
All finalists though are included in the Writers Theatre!
