My screenplay, White Rum, is a quarterfinalist in the Fresh Voices Screenplay Competition. Semi-finalists will be announced on March 3rd.
Here's my favorite quote from the notification letter:
The competition was fierce and you should be very proud to be amongst the top 20% of the more than 1,500 screenplay entries we received. 325 scripts are now advancing to the next round of the competition in 10 different categories.
WHITE RUM is a historical drama set in Puerto Rico in 1917. Fernando, a poor Carib, invents a new white rum. He and the woman he loves are blocked from selling it by their new US Citizenship, Prohibition, and her brother, the island's biggest distiller.
