ReelHeART International Film and Screenplay Festival

CONTEST DESCRIPTION

Original. Indie. Anti-Niche.

ReelHeART International Film and Screenplay Festival is a worldwide independent festival held in Toronto, Canada.
The 17th Annual ReelHeART runs July 05-11, 2021.

We focus on the best in Indie Cinema from Around The Block and Around The World with 22 Competitions to choose from.

Specifically for Screenwriters - For years, ReelHeART has been mentoring Screenwriters from around the world to get their Screenplay into the best possible shape for the next and most sought after step in their careers –
—A Hollywood Option!

ALL Scripts receive FREE Valuable Industry Coverage!

If Hollywood doesn’t come calling, then maybe the next step is representation from a Manager, Agent, or an Interested 3rd Party who has seen your screenplay as part of the judging process at ReelHeART or we’ve sent to a production house who makes the kind of films your screenplay is about.

Or maybe your ReelHeART experience gets you so inspired to make your next re-write so crisp and clean that you go on to make your Screenplay into a Film and enter it the following year and win a Prize!

Whatever the next step is for you as a Screenwriter, we mentor you by going through each and every screenplay entered with a fine tooth comb to get your script ready for that next re-write, or get your screenplay ‘Table-Read’ ready for a Live Festival Audience.

All Scripts entered receive valuable industry related coverage – for FREE
