"I have been involved with this competition from the beginning and I'm very proud of what it is trying to achieve and I'm hugely impressed with the quality of screenplays coming in." Nik Powell.

"Every writer's dream is to have their screenplay produced, to see their baby shot and up on the silver screen. Our aim at BSSC is to fullfil that dream" - says producer Arif Hussein.
