Loved this contest! Walked away with Best Science Fiction feature. Nominated for Best Overall. I will definitely be back again next year with my new screenplays. Great comradery among the writers, mentors, and filmmakers. It felt like I walked into a room full of friends that I hadn't seen in a bit.

At our goal is to support our fellow screenwriters — from our free 15 minute consultation to our one-on-one sessions. We didn't want to stop there so we've taken it a step further and created Script Summit to celebrate our fellow writers and give them opportunities to network with industry professionals such as producers, directors, and other writers. Plus, we are also providing some really interesting events such as:

Screenplay Table Reads
Screenwriting Seminars
