Primarily seeking Canadian writing talent, especially from Ontario. Please specify if this is the case. Writers from elsewhere are also welcome. Also, writers that have a mental or physical challenge that write from a place of authenticity are strongly encouraged to apply.
They are looking for stories from our past that shine a light on mavericks who went against the perceived norms of the time. Shining a light and social intolerance or injustice. Comps include Hidden Figures, 12 Years a Slave and Little Women.
We are open to any and all writers from any background, race or gender.
When submitting your FEATURE, please include your SCRIPT, a punchy one page SYNOPSIS and most importantly, a thoroughly developed LOGLINE. We want to know your concept and hook within the logline. We will narrow our selection from the synopsis and logline, so you’ll want to impress and grab us with those elements.
Union and non-union writers accepted. Scripts from anywhere in the world will be considered but must be in English language.
