Produced by WCA, is in post – Big congrats to cast and crew and all involved. WCA can’t wait to share them with you when we launch the WCA Short Script Competition for 2012.

and of course to seeing them up on the BIG screen at Next Years WCA Screening and Awards Night which looks set to be awesome, and a thoroughly entertaining evening.  

The 1st Screening & Awards night in April 2011 was so popular it sold out to the submitting filmmakers and Guests before it even touched our mailing list, so next year we are delighted to announce a bigger venue to accomodate our participants as well.  With support from Cineworld we have secured a Cinema space to screen our 2012 Screening & Awards Night.  So, watch out for details about submissions and criteria for both the short script competition and the Screening & Awards night coming soon! 

CALL TO MEMBERS: To support the continued growth of WCA in supporting independent filmmaking, and to ensure the quality of further initiatives, productions and collaborations, WCA will be introducing membership to support all the good work we do – watch this space for further details coming soon!
