Kevin Spacey - Kevin Spacey Praises Quality Of Film Competition Entries

Oscar winner Kevin Spacey was blown away by the scripts submitted to him for his annual filmmaking competition.

The House of Cards star is creative director behind the Jameson One Shot movie contest, in which three budding filmmakers are selected to produce their own short starring a Hollywood actor.

The 2014 winners were named on Friday (11Apr14) as Henco J from South Africa, Ivan Petukhov from Russia, and Jessica Valentine from the U.S., and they will fly to Los Angeles to direct actress Uma Thurman in their shorts, which will be produced by Spacey's company Trigger Street Productions.

Spacey was thrilled by this year's (14) competition entries, saying, "Every year the standard of entries seems to get higher and higher and the scripts submitted this year far exceeded our expectations again. Jameson First Shot has proven itself as a real opportunity for filmmakers to get that all important 'first shot' in the industry, and the success our previous winners have already experienced is testament to that.

"I can't wait to see the films that this year's winners will make; I know Uma is going to be phenomenal and together with the team at Trigger Street we will make another three exceptional films."
