Access Sacramento is looking for short film scripts for its 19th annual “A Place Called Sacramento” Film Festival script competition. Ten entries will be selected for production and a big-screen world premiere in October, 2018.
Entry scripts must be no longer than 10-minutes with family-friendly stories that feature people and places from the Sacramento region.” Script entries are due by 5 p.m. Wed.
