Script To Screen: Live Script Read of Untethered

Script To Screen: Live Script Read of Untethered

Experience a film from where it first begins – with the script. This is a rare opportunity to witness a screenplay’s journey to screen with a live table-reading of an unproduced script.

The feature film script Untethered by David Peterson is the winner of the Queensland Screenwriting Award and has been awarded $5,000, sponsored by The Heaton Group.

When a former refugee embarks on a prototype spacecraft to Mars, her lack of trust in her crew compounds the danger when the ship is damaged, and she must unlearn the lessons of her deadly voyage with people smugglers 30 years earlier.

Don’t miss a live read-through of the script performed by QUT acting students.


Queensland Screenwriting Award is sponsored by The Heaton Group
The Heaton Group is delighted to once again support the Gold Coast Film Festival’s Queensland Screenwriting Award. This year, the winner will receive $5,000 cash prize and 2nd and 3rd place will receive $500 each.
