The Bombay Sapphire Imagination Film Series has really captured the imagination by seeking to put creativity to work to make a new short film. With the help of Geoffrey Fletcher – Oscar winning screenwriter of Precious – and Tribeca Film Festival, a short-film script has been produced. The task is to use your imagination to bring this script to life. His words. Your genre. Your locations. Your characters. Your imagination. Five winning entries will be selected by Bombay Sapphire, Geoffrey Fletcher and the Tribeca Film Festival alongside a panel of other film industry luminaries from across the globe to go into production. The winners will work alongside Bombay Sapphire to create the first five films of the Imagination Series with each film awarded a £50,000 production budget. Entries for the global Competition close on Wednesday 1 August 2012. The five winners will be selected and announced late September 2012 Production will take place from October 2012 Completed films will be released and screened early 2013. The script is available to download alongside competition details at
