For the fifth consecutive year, Lloyd Chrein has proudly served as a screenplay judge for the prestigious Austin Film Festival. This year, Lloyd critiqued nine original screenplays, written by screenwriters from around the world. Several of Lloyd’s recommendations made it into the final judging, which will take place at the festival, in Austin, Texas, from October 13 – 20, 2016.
Among Lloyd’s favorites were “The Circle Game”, a “singular love story”. Lloyd’s comment: “By far the best script I read this year – original, refreshing, smart, incisive, touching, moving. A superbly crafted story. You MUST move this into the next round!!” Another standout was the thriller “Bush Baby Summer”, of which Lloyd said, “The writer has assembled a strong and diverse ensemble of characters here. This would be a break out opportunity for a selection of young, male actors.”
Look out for both (hopefully, someday) in a theater near you!
