ATABUG introduces inaugural Mini Film Script Competition
It can be a wonder at times where creative ideas manifest? Do you sit down to write and words flow onto the paper or are you out walking the dog or doing the shopping and something you see sparks a thought, that can be visualised into a television series or blockbuster film?
Wherever you start or where your inspiration comes from, you may like to take part and enter the inaugural ATAGUB Mini Film & Script Competition. Deadline for all entries if 7th June 2020. Each entrant will receive a one-month subscription to theatrebugs.vhx.tv to watch all the movies by 12th June 2020.
