Chicago, IL – Five finalists will be named in Pride Films and Plays’ Great Gay Screenplay Contest, an international contest for screenplays with LGBT characters and themes. The finalists include a wide range of subject matter ranging from a love triangle set in France, a mystical teenage romance laced with racial tension, a set of non-actors facing possible Hollywood stardom, a sweet coming-of-age tale, and an older man’s revelation of painful secrets. The five screenplays will be performed as enhanced staged readings during Gay Film Weekend at Center on Halsted’s Hoover-Leppen Theatre November 13 to 15, 2015.
Tickets for Gay Film Weekend at Center on Halsted are Pay-What-You-Can ($10 suggeted) and can be purchased at the door 3o minutes prior to the performance.
