Every brilliant film begins with a brilliant screenplay. Do you have what it takes? Our annual screenplay competition is aimed at finding the best and most talented writers from around the world. The main goal of the competition is to uncover the best, unproduced screenplays and in collaboration with the writer help develop and potentially produce them. We will work hard to support all talented writers that enter our contest . . . not just the winners.
