Broadcast Signal Intrusion
New screenwriters hoping to break through in the horror genre have been invited to apply to FrightFest's sixth New Blood scheme, which sees the high profile horror festival partner with Giles Edwards of Queensbury Pictures to seek out and nurture new talent. The aim of the initiative, which previously gave rise to festival hit Broadcast Signal Intrusion, is to take promising first drafts through to the production stage.
The eight applicants with the most promising drafts will be invited to London to be mentored as a group by industry experts including Andy Nyman, Jennifer Sheridan and Toby Poser.
"Queensbury Pictures is proud to be back around the table with a formidable line-up of mentors for what will be the 6th New Blood session, rousing and inspiring a fresh crop of as-yet-undiscovered, earth-trembling genre talent," said Edwards.
