Best film scripts awarded prizes at Victoria

A Victoria University of Wellington Masters student has won the annual David Carson-Parker Prize for his feature film script The Sun At Night, set in Wellington's youth and drug culture.
 
Jack Barrowman, a Masters student in the Creative Writing programme at Victoria’s International Institute of Modern Letters (IIML), received his $3,000 prize at a function last night.
 
The prize is awarded annually to the best script written in the Masters course in Creative Writing at the IIML.
 
Victoria Scriptwriting Programme Director Ken Duncum describes Jack’s script as both devastating and compelling.
