    Glavpitching is the first all-Russian screenwriting contest that was initiated by the major Russian Film production company Glavkino and the New York Film Academy in the Autumn of 2013. The contest is a platform where novice writers and producers can meet key players in the Russian film industry to pitch their projects, or sell the story or launch the project into production. 
     
    1,930 authors from all over Russia and CIS countries submitted more than 2,500 scripts for assessment.
     
    The jury consisted of leading television and film professionals: Fyodor Bondarchuk (Art Pictures Studio, Glavkino), Roman Borisevich (Koktebel Film Company), Michael Galustjan (Fresh Film), Sergey Selyanov (STV Film Company), Igor Tolstunov (Film Profit), Ilya Bachurin (Glavkino) and CEO of TV Channel One Konstantin Ernst.
     
    Final Event and Award Ceremony took place at Glavkino soundstage on November 27th, 2013.

    The absolute winner of GLAVPITCHING is Alexander Yaropolsky, 16 year-old Journalism student of Moscow State University. He pitched a script of the feature thriller “Virus” about three teenagers who shoot violent viral videos for YouTube, and even though their videos have the fantastic popularity and thousands of hits, they inevitably lose something much more important – humanity.

    Alexander won the main award of the contest: the certificate for the services of the Glavkino in equivalent of 1,000,000 Rubles, Special prize from ROSKINO: Trip to the Cannes Film Festival and participation in the training program Producers Workshop and Bondarchuk’s Grant from NYFA for a 2-week Screenwriting Workshop in Moscow in Spring 2014.

    Next GLAVPITCHING contest will take place in the Autumn 2014.

    “American Girl in Italy” by Ruth Orkin

    As we all know, black and white photography was at one point in time the only form of photography. Since the advent of color, we’ve seen an array of exploration into the medium. However, black and white remains a style of choice for many professional photographers. Some classic, gritty images can only be truly expressed through black and white. With that, the New York Film Academy wants to see which black and white photograph stands out in your portfolio.

    To enter this week’s “Black and White” contest, follow us on Instagram and send us your best black and white photo to marketing@nyfa.edu by Friday 12:00pm EST.

    The winner will be mailed a NYFA T-Shirt and have his or her photo posted on NYFA Instagram and Facebook!

    We’d also like to congratulate last week’s winner, Stephania Sanquiz from Venezuela, who sent us this rather flexible “Halloween” photo.
