THE END

Short Film // Directed by Koura Linda
 
The End Film Poster.jpg

 

Knowing that her world could end at any moment, a young woman living in the shadow of her past struggles to make a decision about her future.

This screenplay was originally written in 1 hour during the Silicone Valley International Film Festival's Scriptwriter Showdown in November 2022.  The showdown featured selected writers who were given the prompt of "the world is ending tomorrow" and then given one hour to write a short film based around that theme.  During this virtual event, the writers shared their screens in front of the audience, with their cameras on.  Koura completed this script in that hour, and it won!

The screenplay was then polished and submitted to the Orlando Independent Filmmakers #Legend Challenge for 2023 where it was accepted.  The film was produced between March 4-April 20 2023 and screened at a private OIF event May 20, 2023!
