EVENT SPONSORS:

FINAL DRAFT Co-founded in 1990 by Marc Madnick and Ben Cahan, Final Draft has published its screenwriting software for over 30 years. Used by such elite creatives as J.J. Abrams and Bong Joon Ho, the software is described as “the professional’s choice and the entertainment industry standard.” Developed by and for writers, Final Draft 12 offers a new level of flexibility to accommodate various styles of working. Its functions include “Focus Mode,” which allows users to eliminate distractions on screen, as they work, and “Track Changes,” which keeps a record of script edits. A key new feature present in the Final Draft update is an oft-requested “PDF Import” function, which allows users to convert PDFS into fully-editable Final Draft files. 

 

PAGE TURNER SCREENPLAYS: PAGE-TURNER: page–turn·er \ˈpāj-ˌtər-nər\ n. A script so compelling or exciting that the reader is unable to put it down. And that’s exactly what the PAGE-TURNER Screenplay Competition is looking for. Regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation or economic background, Page-Turner is focused on finding and supporting great original stories with a strong voice that grip the reader from the first page to the last. Whether the story you tell is a genre film or an indie pic, a network procedural or an edgy cable drama, we want to find the most compelling, unique, page-turning scripts out there. We are looking for scripts that we CAN’T put down. Our mission is to help screenwriters through writing competitions where they are read by professional working writers who give honest professional feedback on their scripts. Send us your best. We look forward to supporting and helping you grow as a writer.

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.
