Now in it’s 5th year, The Imaginarium Convention features juried awards in an array of categories for feature films, short films, documentaries, and music videos in all genres! There is also a category for screenplays that have not yet been produced, which is juried and awarded as one of our Imadjinn Awards! Imaginarium is set for its best year yet, next October 5-7 in Louisville, Kentucky at the Ramada Plaza Hotel and Conference Center! From screenings to an array of panels and workshops over 3 days, this is fast-becoming an event independent filmmakers and screenwriters do not want to miss! Early bird deadline with submission
The Imaginarium Convention is proud to announce “Return to Freedom” by Bristol Mac Donald as the recipient of a 2017 Imadjinn Award for Best Screenplay! A high number of entries and the competitive nature of the category involving screenplays that have not yet been produced resulted in a slightly extended judging period, in addition to a decision to recognize 3 runner-ups in this category. The final award recognitions for the 2017 Imadjinn Award for Best Screenplay are as follows: 2017 Imadjinn Award for Best Screenplay “Return to Freedom” by Bristol Mac Donald First Runner-up “Under the Helmet” by Todd Bird Second Runner-Up “Swimming with the Sharks”
