Biography

 Jeff York was named one of the International Screenwriters Association’s 25 top screenwriters for 2018. He’s figured in the finals of over 70 screenwriting contests and counting thus far and has won several of them too. He took the Grand Prize for his western “The Scoundrels Club” at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival’s "Table Read My Screenplay." His horror tale “Incurable” was named the best spec script by Script magazine in 2009. And his romantic comedy “The Love Seat” was named by Final Draft as one of the four best spec scripts of 2012. Jeff's dark comedy “Play Dirty” was a Nicholl Fellowship semifinalist. His script “Fiend” has been a Top 10 Finalist in a dozen contests. He has been a ScreenCraft fellowship finalist twice and a Script Pipeline finalist five times. He even was a double finalist in the summer of 2016 with his pilot script for kid's talk show "History/Herstory" and his television adaptation of "The Scoundrels Club." Jeff hosted the podcast "Page 2 Screen for three years for the ISA, and he's been a working film critic since 2011, having written for Creative Screenwriting magazine, the Examiner online, and Pipeline Artists, among others. His film blog “The Establishing Shot" is read in 27 countries, and not surprisingly, Jeff is one of the original charter members of the Chicago Indie Critics. In the summer of 2020, he worked with two Netflix producers developing four different series, and he has consulted all kinds of business and worked in advertising for many decades too. He's a SAG/AFTRA member, and even a famed caricature artist whose works hang in the homes of Spike Lee, Bryan Cranston, John Lithgow, Cynthia Nixon, and Antonio Banderas, among others.
