Juliet Bergh’s script for short Hannah’s Birthday has added to its award tally with a win at the London Film Awards.
The screenplay, which has already picked up wins at Shriekfest, St Tropez and Hollywood Horrorfest, took the Best Short Screenplay gong in the UK.
Bergh was co-writer and director of Existence, the first Escalator title out of the blocks, which won the New Writer and Feature Script gongs at the Writers’ Guild SWANZ bash in 2012.
The London Film Awards offers its rewards across 27 categories, five of them for screenplays, including Feature Films, Short Films, Documentaries, Student Films, Animation, TVCs and MVs. The 2014 Grand Prix winner was Paul Emmanuel’s UK feature The Maid.
