Chicago Fire actor and long-time Chicago artist/resident Joe Min?oso has been working tirelessly on a massive project designed to create visibility, inclusivity, and equity for Chicago's marginalized artists. "Mass Epiphany Studios is thrilled to announce the official launch of its first program, The Epiphany Project: A Screenplay Scholarship on Martin Luther King Jr. Day," Min?oso said.

The Epiphany Project will be accepting film script submissions written by BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA+ artists in two categories: feature and short. Finalists will be chosen based on a variety of contexts including strength of voice, story originality, commitment to Chicago's artistic community, and equitable representation. Winners will receive pro bono script development support from Mass Epiphany Studios, project-specific mentoring from industry producers, and a cash award of $500 for the short category and $2500 for the feature category winners.

Founder and chief creative officer Joe Min?oso, said, "We look to reinvent Chicago's independent film industry and help build a world where BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ people have a key to every room, a seat at every table, and where every child—regardless of race or gender—gets to say, "I SEE ME."

Mass Epiphany Studios is a film and television vocational arts academy and studio system that looks to be a megaphone for America's marginalized artists of tomorrow. For more information on Mass Epiphany Studios and The Epiphany Project, visit our website at:
