    The SCRIPTOID Writers Challenge sensation! In its first year, the challenge has risen as one of the fastest growing competitions in the game! Ran by writers for writers, SCRIPTOID has a simple goal- even if you dont win, you should walk away feeling accomplished. Cash and prizes, and representation contracts from ADA Management Group, given to winners. Competition ends September 30th, 2010. Winners announced in December. As a sponsor of TCFF, the people at SCRIPTOID have selected a number of scenes as part of a mini-competition sponsored by the chal-lenge. These scenes will be read as part of an event in conjunction with the film festival.

  • Dear Festivalgoers,

    Welcome to The Clearwater Film Festival! It is our great pleasure to present to you over seventy films with no less than ten World premieres and several Florida premieres.

    This festival developed as a result of becoming enamored and inspired by my visit to Festival de Cannes in 2008. That dynamic meeting of mind, personality, talent and celebrity drawn together for a single creative purpose fascinated me. I spent the next year traveling to trade shows and festivals around the US.

    The fundamental principle of a trade show is to bring everyone together to advance their careers. As an actor, writer and director, this is how I like so many others want to spend their chosen profession; in advancement - to become the best at what they do. Creating a film festival that does this simply made sense to me. So I announced that I was creating a film festival and I did.

    We intend to present an extraordinary outlet for bringing creativity together, to network with film professionals and showcase those garnering recognition and achieving success.

    Learning from master craftspeople is its own reward for any aspiring individual. I sought out panelists with experience to share, who want to share it, and thank each of our guests for being here to enjoy our inaugural season.

    In Clearwater Florida we have abundant sunshine and billowing clouds overlooking beautiful beaches on prime real estate. One goal with this festival is to bring filmmakers here and offer a taste of true Florida with palm trees, beaches, swamps, pine forest and city streets. Another is for resident filmmakers to reach out to the film industry with an annual networking event that develops as a trade show and convention for the Southeastern US and effectively boosts local production.

    We also aim to recognize the multi-talented Triple Threat Filmmaker who does it all; acting, writing, directing and even scoring music to produce their own works of art.

    This year we introduce The Wavecrest Award. This token of recognition is dedicated to those whose work excels beyond their peers. Our festivals sole purpose is to help filmmakers make films and showcase the absolute best work.

    We received 200 submissions from around the globe and had an abundance of talent presented to us. With limited screen time it was an excruciating decision to make eliminations and we wish there were a dozen more films we could have shown you. Many films submitted were finely crafted and with what we have chosen for presentation we could not be more proud.

    In recognition of the films evaluated and including some of those accepted we must take notice of the vast array of con-tent received pertaining in some way to the abuse of women. An alarming 15% of films submitted focused on this topic. They came from every culture, every cast or class of people, from numerous countries and every continent. Numbers like this can not be ignored when filmmakers worldwide, both narrative and documentary, are shouting at us with this mes-sage. It must be considered epidemic. Filmmakers reveal to us what we do not know there is to see.

    It is with this message in mind that we support The Haven of RCS, a local shelter for abused women. We also support Venue Actors Studio, a local not-for-profit acting school. We pledge a portion of profits from this festival will be donated to these worthy causes.

    We thank you for taking to the time and effort to be with us and trust you will enjoy the program we have developed. Please partake of the many educational opportunities and networking events. We hope you will prosper with us and visit year after year.

  • Mike RembisEXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Mike Rembis is an actor, screenwriter, director and Executive Producer at Best Productions in Clearwater Florida. Trained in Stras-berg method acting at Venue Actors Studio Created Best, a TV sitcom about a car rental on an island where nobody needs a car Won Grand Prize at the 2008 Cannes 24 Hour Film Challenge for Perfect Pitch, a short film about a singer who cant singRecognized for competitive screenwriting as a writer who impressed the judges, but not quite as well as the winners did at Scriptapalooza, semifinalist and quarterfinalist (3 times) The Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting, runner up The Boston International Film Festival, top ten finalist The Las Vegas Short Script Awards, judges selection The American Gem Short Script Competition, top 326Last year, Mike joined forces with director Din Altit and co-wrote the feature Unpunished, a fact based drama about the femi-cides of Ciudad Juarez, now in development with Streetwise Productions. Then he found a script he just couldnt put down; Sometimes Called Falling In Love by Ray Rosales, a dark romantic comedy about a case of love on the rocks, with a twist. Mike took it straight to pre-production and will soon be directing his first feature film. The Clearwater Film Festival is his biggest challenge to date and he is excited to see it take shape. He is represented for acting by Sue Miller at The Miller Agency in Tampa and for writing by George Doulamis at ADA Management in Palm Beach Gardens.

    Ellen Rembis QUALITY ASSURANCE/FESTIVAL LIAISON Ellen is Mikes wife of 23 years. tOriginally from New York City, she and Mike first met in Montana, when she was a ranger in Yellowstone National Park. She completed a biology degree in Fish and Wildlife Management at Montana State University in Bozeman and soon went into the pharmaceutical industry to become a Quality Assurance Auditor. She has over 15 years experience qualifying prescription drugs for human consumption based on USDA standards. Poor batches would never make the cut, not on her watch. Now, Ellens passion for film and those years of quality assurance experi-ence gives us a tremendous advantage and an uncompromising edge in choosing our films. Ellen makes sure our screen-ers are well aware of what they should be watching for and grading films in compliance with a standards process that creates a uniform scorecard and places all entries on equal footing before they are viewed. Once screened, results are tabulated and recorded to see which films may end up being included as The Clearwater Film Festival Official Selections.

    Justin Marr FESTIVAL SPONSORSHIP LIAISON Justin Marr excelled as a student at Central Michigan University, practicing all facets of film. As a screenwriter, Justin co-wrote a weekly drama based on student-life for the award-winning student station, Moore Hall Television.To practice concise, efficient writing, Justin simultaneously was a senior entertainment and sports reporter for the award-winning student newspaper, CM-Life. As a habitual writer, Justin has written several shorts and features and hopes to someday direct and produce his work. Justin increased his familiarity of film diversity during his tenure as member of the Central Michigan Film Society Selection Committee. He organized, screened potential films, and promoted the International Film Festival. To supplement his passion for film, Justin took several film courses under the acclaimed CMU staff, includ-ing sound/video editing, screenwriting, film analysis/critique, and entertainment law. The proactive student derived his early experience through Tribeca Productions in New York City during two summer internships. He learned the crucial principles of film development under a wealth of knowledge, including Jane Rosenthal and Robert DeNiro. Upon gradu-ation, Justin joined filmmaker Mike Rembis with Best Productions to continue learning the art of film and bring film recognition to Pinellas and beyond Florida with The Clearwater Film Festival.

  • The WaveCrest AwardJeff Owen Artworks

    The Wavecrest Award is an original design by San Jose CA sculptor Jeff Owen. A sleek plate of shining steel dances with a ribbon of hand cut metal filmstrip to be-come a one of a kind work of art that we are proud to have as our own. The Wavecrest will be awarded to the BEST work in these categories: Feature Film, Short Film, Documentary, Animation, Director, Original Mu-sic, Screenplay, Actor, Actress, Supporting Roles, Inter-national Selection and Triple Threat Filmmaker.

    Jeff Owen In His Own WordsI try to approach each sculpture without following a set pattern. My work begins with any idea. These ideas can begin with a found object or they can begin with no object. When Im in my studio I may stumble and kick a few bits here and there -- and they may just happen to throw into a pattern that sets me off, that sets off a vision of how I would create and finish. If only it all had that kind of accidental beauty to it. I want to be like a poet, with my sculpture, my paintings, my life. My sculptures unite shapes or-ganically manipulated objects and textures, merging energy, al-lowing my spirit to emerge. My sculpture is both negative and positive space, coexisting in one cohesive medium. The presence and substance of raw steel ignores the realm of the smelter and lives deeply, with emotion and a unique unknown clarity deep within me. My sculptures are an existential part of me brought to the surface for all to see. There is no deeper communication I can express.
