iW NEWS | Nantucket Fest Announces Screenwriting Award

The Nantucket Film Festival has announced that the winner of this year’s Showtime Tony Cox Award for Screenwriting is F.M. Strype‘s “Anna Down East.” The winning script was selected from three finalists by a jury consisting of Doug Liman, Chris Eigeman, and Liz Tucillo. “We’re proud to have contributed in the cultivation of several scripts that have gone on to further success,” said Festival Executive Director Jill Burkhart in a statement. As the competition winner, Strype will receive an invitation to The Screenwriters Colony 2008 writers retreat and workshop. For the month of October, the winner is invited to come to Nantucket for an all-expense-paid stay on Almanack Farm. Winning scripts from the past two years include optioned scripts “Peck” by Mark Arneson and “Cold Souls” by Sophie Bartes. [Peter Knegt]
