Welcome to the home of stories aching to be told. With 36 five-star reviews in our first year, we launched deep into FilmFreeway’s “Top 100 Best Reviewed Festivals” within our first six days of eligibility. Our second festival, which runs this October 11-13, welcomes 65 films, 77 screenplays and four songs. We are also expanding to four-days in 2020; with festival dates from October 8-11, 2020. Below are our 2020 Screenplay Submission categories. Don’t hesitate! Submit your work today!

 

 

Feature Film Screenplay – Screenplays must be 70-120 pages in length, in English and written in an industry standard format. All entries must be submitted in .PDF file form.

Short Film Screenplay – Short Screenplays must be no longer than 30 pages.

Script Accessible – Feature Screenplays focused on Disabilities –  EMBRACE ABILITY. These two simple words are our bedrock. The development process of creating “Script Accessible” started several decades ago, when a head injury turned my healthy six-month-old body into one that would someday house a writer that types with one usable hand. Since then, I’ve spent my life embracing my abilities, rather than my inabilities. My mission is to encourage writers with disabilities to make their voice heard and to inspire all writers to create more stories with disabled characters. “The globe is our community and we strive to inspire every inch of it.”

Script Accessible was housed at the Slamdance Screenwriting Contest in 2009-2010 and was sponsored by WGA-West. Gia Milani, our 2009 winner, “All the Wrong Reasons,”  not only went on to be produced, but it won the Discovery Award of the 2013 Toronto Film Festival.
