Film students to remake Shaw Brothers classics

BEIJING — Chinese shingle Celestial Pictures has teamed up with the Beijing Film Academy and Youth Film Studio to launch a screenplay competition.

Young filmmakers will be invited to remake selected Shaw Brothers classics, with multihyphenate Sylvia Chang co-judging the contest and mentoring the winner.

Competish is open to the 2011 graduating class as well as past graduates of BFA’s directors program.

Entrants will submit a six- to eight-page story treatment based on any one of ten selected films from Celestial’s Shaw Brothers Film Library. Five of the story treatments will then be short-listed by a panel of judges to be further developed into full-length screenplays and the five filmmakers will each be given a development fund of RMB20,000 ($3,000).

The five completed screenplays will then be reviewed by the judging panel with the aim of producing the top three screenplays.
