Call for Submissions: Under 30 - Young Latino Playwrights Speak Out
Teatro Bravo seeks ten-minute plays written by Latino playwrights under 30. If chosen, submissions will be included in the Latino Play Festival for January 2009 as staged readings. Possible production of plays may follow, pending funding.
Teatro Bravo produces plays that portray a variety of issues in the national Latino and/or Latin American community in both English and Spanish. For further information, please view our website: www.teatrobravo.org.
Deadline: postmarked or emailed by October 1, 2008
The purpose of the contest
1. To promote new opportunities for young Latino playwrights.
2. To uncover the issues in the minds of younger writers, and portray them on stage.
3. To increase visibility of young Latino playwrights.
4. To discover new talent across the country.
1. The play must be ten-minutes or ten pages in standard play format with 12-point type and standard margins.
2. The play must be on any subject matter pertinent to either "contemporary Latino issues" or "Latino heritage," broadly interpreted.
3. The plays may be written in English, Spanish, or Spanglish.
4. Technical effects must be kept simple.
5. Any number of characters is acceptable as long as it makes sense to the story the author is trying to tell. In ten minutes, the author may wish to concentrate on a small number of characters, but there's always an exception.
6. The author owns all the rights, and will maintain them. We simply seek the right to present it once during the Latino Play Festival. We would renegotiate any future use.
7. We prefer new and unproduced work, but the play may be produced as long as the rights for this presentation are readily available.
8. We cannot pay for the staged reading section of the presentations, but would pay a royalty if the play is chosen for production.
9. Please include a copy of an identification that reveals age with your submission. Since some documents are private, you may wish to block out the i.d. number. All we need is a date that reveals age with your name on it. (When does one count as 30? By the deadline or the festival? We will count you as "under 30" if that's your age by the time the postmark or the electronic submission is made. )
10. If you're mailing your submission, please enclose an SASE if you wish your submission returned. Otherwise, please write a note allowing us to recycle.
11. Playwrights may be notified shortly after December 1, 2008.
12. Please include contact information on your script: name, a phone number, or an email address.
Please send submissions to:

Big Sky Film Series Hosts Free Screening of Obscene (Missoula)
Big Sky Film Series #8 - "Obscene"
When: July 3, 2008 - Screening at 7:30 p.m.
Where: Historic Wilma Theater/Missoula, Montana
Cost: Free Public Admission
Big Sky Films Series continues the 2008 season with the independent feature documentary "Obscene". Barney Rosset is the greatest American publisher of the twentieth century and the most influential cultural figure that you haven't heard of. Under Rosset, Grove Press and Evergreen Review fought decisive battles, including many before the state and federal supreme courts, defeated legal censorship, and opened American life to new and dangerous currents of freedom. But Rosset's public fight against hypocrisy and injustice is inextricable from his tumultuous personal life: the same unyielding, quixotic, reckless energy that upended centuries of law brought Rosset perilously close to self- destruction and exacted a cost from friends, colleagues and family.
The Big Sky Film Series is a periodic monthly screening series highlighting traditional and innovative nonfiction film and video. It is held the first Friday of the month as part of downtown Missoula, Montana's "Art Walk." All screenings are held in the HistoricWilma Theater and are free and open to the public. The series is programmed by the staff of the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival.
