MEET YOUR HOST:  Christopher Collom

Christopher has been writing prose & verse for more than thirty years (unavoidable when your father is a published poet) but has focused on screenwriting since 2014. His main genres are drama, historical drama, and thrillers. He has adapted the pilot teleplay of his Herod the Great TV series into a graphic novel, which had a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2017 and is available online at Comixology. Prior to screenwriting, he taught geology and paleontology at colleges and universities in Calgary, Alberta – where he lives with his wife Fotina and their Pomeranians. In their free time, they compete in conformation (dog shows) and canine agility.

Capital Fund Screenplay Competition is where your scripts are read directly by investors who buy projects and fund films at the studio level - domestically and abroad. Investors or Funds may elect to option or purchase your script at any time regardless of whether or not your script places in the contest. All current and previous years winners and The Hot 100 Lists are showcased at investor meetings at the major film markets worldwide. Your summary and logline will get exposure year after year. Our entrants have been optioned and sold at AFM, Cannes, Berlin, Toronto, and Shanghai film markets.
