Hungarian production company Chaplin Film and web-site www.magyar.film.hu have selected five treatments from their joint screenwriting competition which Chaplin plans to develop into full-length screenplays.
The winning projects include Propulsion by Balazs Loth, Dead Channel by Miklos Varga and Andras Horvath, Champion Factory by Istvan Bernath and family dramas Lajcsi, The Cute by Jozsef Makai and Once Upon A Day by Kriszta Biro.
Entrants were asked to turn in a one-page treatment based on an original idea. Once the screenplays are completed they will be judged again and the winner will receive a cash prize. Chaplin also plans to seek backers to get the screenplays into production.
