GEOFFREY FLETCHER CELEBRATES A FRESH WAVE OF FILM TALENT AT THE 2014 TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL
New York, 23 April, 2014 – Academy Award® winning screenwriter Geoffrey Fletcher today celebrated the premiere of the five winning short films from the Bombay Sapphire Imagination Series competition at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.
Heavyweights from the international film community including Katie Holmes, Ryan Eggold, Toni Collette, Sophia Loren, Frankie Alzarez and Emma Watson stepped onto the red carpet to join the celebrations and share their own thoughts on what imagination means to them.
The Bombay Sapphire Imagination Series competition offers the next generation of film makers the chance to work alongside world-class talent to produce their own short film. Entrants interpreted a script written by Geoffrey Fletcher – without any direction or description – resulting in five films that transcend genres and demonstrate the power of imagination.
With such eclectic interpretations on show, including a dramatic realisation set in space, a love story with a dark twist and a fantastical world surrounded by living street art, viewers are guaranteed to be taken on an exciting and thought-provoking journey as each filmmaker’s contrasting and creative visions are brought to life on the big screen.
Having secured the accolade of the 2014 British Short Film BAFTA, for one of last year’s films, Room 8, Bombay Sapphire is looking forward to the release of this year’s films.
