Nice International Filmmaker Festival of World Cinema, held in the south of France just before the Cannes Film Festival, has, as its objective, the promotion of cinematographic art by presenting films of quality and entertainment.
We are proud to offer the winner of our unproduced scripts category this prestigious international trophy award, recognising them and their script or screenplay amongst our wealth of industry connections as a story that just has to be told! With this international award under your belt, you can expect the chances of your work leaving development and entering production to skyrocket. Congratulations!
We are squarely focused on supporting emerging screenwriters in their professional growth by providing nearly every tool and resource available in the industry. It's our express goal to support writers of any level or background, who are proactive in developing their careers and are willing to learn from the insights and expertise of our community members. Screenwriting takes perseverance. The harder you work, the better this site will work for you.
In this industry, the first twenty pages can mean the difference between a "go picture" and a "go home and try again." Give your writers the advantage with a page (or two) introduction to their script from an outside perspective. We'll map out the direction of the screenplay thus far, and give advice to gently nudge them on the proper course.
Our most popular analysis. The writer will receive a personalized critique based on a thorough read-through of the entire script, up to 120 pages. Whether half-hour pilot or feature film, we'll note our thoughts on everything from the characters and dialogue to pacing, structure, and formatting, and even where the work fits in the marketplace.
Give your writers the in-depth insight of the ISA's working industry professionals. Our Readers will provide 5-6 pages of advanced notes, breaking down every moment and character arc, noting the subtleties that a writer may not have contemplated, and providing a next-level perspective that will empower screenwriters and help script achieve their full potential.
Entries must have been produced within the last four years.
Despite accepting English subtitled foreign films at our festivals, all entries for the unproduced scripts category submited in a language other than English will be excluded from consideration due to their incompatibility with our jury and judges.
Scripts and/or screenplays must be submitted digitally in .PDF format. Hard copies sent via postal service is discouraged.
