The Great American Script Contest 
will be bringing not only legit and first-rate chances for you to connect with industry decision makers, agents and producers in Los Angeles, but also provide opportunity to network at live events in Chicago and LA. Script Con will not only be one of the best opportunities for you to get your writing seen and discovered, finalists will all be part of the physical film festivals in Chicago (March) and in LA (June). Teaming with Chicago Comedy, LA Comedy Film Festival and Chicago Independent Film +TV Festivals, The Great American Script Contest is set to give you unbelievable access and connections to the industry.

The Capital Fund Screenplay Competition 
is where your scripts are read directly by investors who buy projects and fund films at the studio level - domestically and abroad.  Investors or Funds may elect to option or purchase your script at any time regardless of whether or not your script places in the contest. All current and previous years winners and The Hot 100 Lists are showcased at investor meetings at the major film markets worldwide. Your summary and logline will get exposure year after year. Our entrants have been optioned and sold at AFM, Cannes, Berlin, Toronto and Shanghai film markets.
