LOCAL playwright Gabriel Bergmoser has been selected as a finalist in the prestigious 2015 Sir Peter Ustinov Television Scriptwriting Award.

Hosted by The International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences – the same group that runs the Academy Awards and The Emmys – the Sir Peter Ustinov Award is designed to motivate international writers under the age of 30.

Entering the first part of his four instalment mini-series, based on the book he wrote in year 12, Gabriel submitted ‘Windmills’ – a script that deals with the choices we make early in life, and the repercussions felt for years afterwards.

“I only entered on a whim, on the day the competition closed,” Gabriel said.

“I just thought my entry would get lost in a million other entries – I lucked out and managed to be one of a handful of finalists.”

The Sir Peter Ustinov Award is designed to help non-Americans develop scripts for the big screen, with entrants asked to create a completed one-hour television drama script.
