The Duke City Shootout has announced the winning scripts for their 2008 competition. The field was narrowed down from over 300 entries to just 11 finalists plus the winner of the Slamdance Best Short Script contest.

Duke City Shootout

All of the finalists were given a week to rewrite their scripts according to notes given to them by the contest. From these 11 finalists and the Slamdance winner, seven winning scripts are chosen to be produced by the Duke City Shootout and directed by the writers. This is an exciting idea for a contest that is designed to promote both the winners and New Mexico as a viable state for filmmaking.
