Rhode Island Fest Names Contest Winner

Barry Brennessel from Silver Spring, MD has been named the Best Screenplay Grand Prize Winner for this year's Flickers' Rhode Island International Film Festival (RIIFF) Screenplay Competition. Barry's winning screenplay is entitled "Anh Sang."

George T. Marshall, RIIFF Executive Director/CEO, made the announcement of the 2017 awards that featured 463 entries in competition. From these, 41 scripts were selected as semi-finalists and 14 scripts were selected Finalists by an international team of adjudicators.

The "Anh Sang" storyline: French Indochina, 1917. Two teenage boys discover their feelings for one another transcend mere friendship. But the hardships under French colonial rule, and the effects of the Great War, alter their lives forever.

"Barry Brennessel's script is both an intimate love story and an epic depiction of French Indochina in the throes of World War I. The script is a defining work that chronicles an often-underrepresented perspective in history," said Shawn Quirk, RIIFF Program Director. "What an amazing year for storytelling and our screenplay competition. This year's entries were inventive and re-defining. They were scored on criteria that included character, dialogue, setting, plot, structure and technique," added Quirk. "We reviewed the largest entry base in competition's history making for difficult decision-making on the part of our international group of judges. "After extensive and careful deliberation, prize winners were chosen in seven distinct categories: Best Screenplay, Best International, Vortex Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror, Best LGBTQ, Spotlight on New England, Best Short Screenplay and Best Television Pilot," Quirk noted.

"Our sincere congratulations to this year's winners," stated George T. Marshall. "This competition has introduced us to some of the world's brightest and most talented writers in the craft."
