Overall Winner

FOREVER YOUNG by Antoine Perry

Inspired by Oscar Wilde's "The Picture of Dorian Gray", Forever Young follows the journey of a Black, gay artist, as he discovers the immortal power of his own work, and fights to keep from becoming a pawn in a centuries-old battle between the greatest artists and muses that the world has ever known.

Feature Winner

DISTRESS by Calvin Starnes

After their interstellar ship is critically damaged, eight survivors struggle to reach the remaining three single-person escape pods before their ship explodes.

TV Winner

SHELLS by Derrick Metellus

To celebrate the anniversary of his sobriety, a cynical weirdo and his hippie girlfriend visit a New Age retreat, only to discover that the retreat – like their relationship – conceals an otherworldly secret.

We're also excited to announce that FOREVER YOUNG by Antoine Perry is the winner of the The ScreenCraft First Look Bootcamp with Manager Cameron Cubbison of Zero Gravity!
