Stage 32 and the St. Petersburg/Clearwater Film Commission are pleased to announce the grand prize winner of their Short Film Script Contest, screenwriter/director Tanya Carleton Lovrics for her screenplay DOLPHIN GIRL. Lovrics will be flown to Florida and mentored by Sundance alum writer/director, JT Mollner. Production company, Digital Caviar will manage production. A native of Niagara Falls, Canada, Lovrics is a graduate—with honors—from Sheridan's Illustration Program and has worked as an illustrator, designer, and owned and operated her own art gallery before concentrating her creative energies on screenwriting. In addition to having her film produced, Lovrics will also receive a Z-Finder provided by Zacuto, a Movie Magic Bundle (Scheduling & Budgeting) from Entertainment Partners. The film will also be showcased during Stage 32’s short film program, featured at the 2017 Hollyshorts Film Festival (Academy Awards qualifying), the 2017 Richmond Film Festival and the 2017 Sunscreen Film Festival. The film will also have a special online, global screening on Stage32.com. “We’re excited to partner with Stage 32 and Digital Caviar to bring this unique opportunity to a talented screenwriter and director—Ms. Lovrics—and showcase the unique filming and location opportunities that St. Petersburg and Clearwater Florida have to offer both up-and-coming and established filmmakers,” said Tony Armer St. Petersburg/Clearwater Film Commissioner.
I feel this entire production is set up for success with JT Mollner, the St. Petersburg/Clearwater Film Commission, and the Digital Caviar production team behind me... With me. Beside me? Anywhere they stand, I feel the support!
