Source to Give Cash Prizes for 2017 Screenwriters Residency Program

"Source/management+production was proud to fund the 2016 Bahamas International Film Festival Screenplay Awards. In 2016 we saw many impressive screenplays which made it a very difficult for the judges to chose the winners.  Furthermore, it was a true joy to work with such talented writers one on one in such an incredible setting (Harbour Island, Bahamas).  Not only did source/management+production fund the award but has also made it our mission to help turn their incredible screenplays into movies. We are assisting some of the many exceptional directors from the festival with their future projects."
