BANFF, AB, June 11, 2012 /CNW/ - Corus Entertainment today announced Script to Screen, a new program partnership with Corus' western-Canada pay TV service Movie Central and the Winnipeg-based National Screen Institute (NSI). Script to Screen will provide established and emerging Canadian screenwriters with
robust funding, creative support and industry guidance to fully develop
feature film concepts for film and television, from script to screen.
"With the launch of the Script and Screen initiative in partnership with National Screen Institute, Corus has the
opportunity to play an instrumental role in fostering screenwriting
talent," said Jocelyn Hamilton, Vice President, Original Programming,
Kids, Comedy, Drama, Corus Entertainment. "In addition to providing
Canadian screenwriters with robust funding, Script to Screen will offer support and expertise throughout the process."
The Script to Screen initiative, which replaces Corus Made with Pay Fund, provides more hands-on involvement shepherding scripts from film
treatment to a polished production-ready script with market viability.
Through the partnership with NSI, selected candidates will also benefit
from the learning and development expertise provided by the renowned
Canadian film, television and media training institution. Submissions
