Screenplays - ROFFEKE Official Selections 2021 (Part 2)

“Surreal” is one word that could be used to describe “Tomi Thirteen”, a screenplay by Max Sparber and Coco Mault, and “Tethered” a screenplay by Kirimi Kiage, Teddy Gitau and Blake Simpson. Tomi Thirteen, is both light and dark. It is an “anime-inspired half-hour comedy, set in a future in which all of humanity lives in giant arcologies protected by superheroes.” You can watch the ROFFEKE screenplay trailer of "Tomi Thirteen" here.

Speaking of the future, 15 years ago, Thomas Behe wrote a graphic novel about “five people’s discovery of this century’s greatest tech convergence - online communities and video mobiles.” Result? A “frighteningly accurate prediction of today’s malignant world of social media - an eerie FORESHADOWING of today’s tech-driven paranoia and online political mayhem.” Thomas submitted the “Contraband” screenplay and although it is longer than ten pages, it is selected since the themes are in line with ROFFEKE’s motto of ‘Friendship, Fun, Freedom’. You can learn more about the Contraband graphic novel here and read reviews of it herehere and here.

Both Tomi Thirteen and Tethered feature a female protagonist. In “Tethered”: “A woman tethered to her ancestors, who she had long misunderstood but not forgotten, is forced to reckon with an experience she cannot explain. You can watch the Tethered screenwriters interview here.

Another screenplay that features a female protagonist is “A short film about a metal head” by Simon X. Frederick: “A mother of two tells a bedtime story. Once upon a time, a young lady discovered the key to her heart…heavy metal.” Simon says: “…I am interested in the psychology of an individual and how society influences us.” You can watch the ROFFEKE screenplay trailer of Simon’s screenplay here.
