Good advice from J.J. Abrams to screenwriters everywhere and now thanks to the generosity of the company behind this award winning software DVMISSION is proud to announce that we will be giving away four licenses for Final Draft 10 as part of the prize for the VERY, VERY, VERY BEST OF DVMISSION at the celebration screening and prize giving on November 11th 2016.

Running as part of Southampton Film Week we are staging “10 Years and Still Rolling” at The Stage Door, Southampton on Friday 11th November 2016. The night starts at 7.30pm with a short panel discussion hosted by long time DVMISSION challenger Rob Hind. It continues with a screening of the very best of DVMISSION from the last ten years curated by the now retired founder Jinx Prowse. Following the awards ceremony where we will give away prizes for the VER, VERY, VERY BEST OF DVMISSION and the DECIENIAL SPIRIT OF DVMISSION there will be an after party hosted by The Stage Door until 1am.

With Final Draft as a sponsor we are taking things to the next level and ensuring that DVMISSION is still rolling in 2027. With this in mind the night will also be an opportunity to launch the 2017 DVMISSION 48 Hour Film Challenge and we hope Final Draft will again support us for this events prize giving.
