A Brief Roswell History
On July 8th, 1947 the wreckage of an unidentified object was recovered in Roswell, NM. The mysterious nature of the object and the ensuing attempts by various government agencies to minimize the incident led many to believe the craft had incredible significance, from possibly being a top secret military weapon to it even being a captured extraterrestrial ship.
Whatever the truth, the mystery surrounding the incident has captured the imaginations of generations and inspired legions of storytellers to find their own take on the incident. From films and TV shows to books, comic books, and collectibles of all kinds, the crash at Roswell remains one of the great sources of inspiration for imaginations of all kinds.
The Roswell Film Festival’s Shoot-Out is designed to give the 5 Short Screenplay winners the opportunity to travel to Roswell, NM to take their idea from “script to screen” and then debut their newly created film to much fanfare at the Film Fest.
