Oscar Moore winning script to be read in London

The Oscar Moore prize is shaping up as one of Europe's most interesting scriptwriting contests. Organised by industry mag Screen International, this year's winner was Marcus Sherpherd's "A Killing in the Woods", singled out by the jury as "a powerful, simple story told with clarity and terrific tension, which avoids English clich├ęs and stylistic tricksiness." If that whets your curiosity and you are in London this Wednesday contact Script Factory, as they are organising a reading of the script together with Bafta. So you get to hear what an award-winning script has to offer while it's still a script (and networking with Bafta and other writers is always interesting).

Venue: BAFTA, 195 Piccadilly, London W1 at 6.30pm on Wednesday 27 July. Entrance is free, but you must absolutely reserve by contacting josh@scriptfactory.co.uk.
