We don’t promise meetings with industry people to pitch your screenplay, we will actually produce your film with a budget of approximately $1 million. The Top 3 Finalists will get an offer of representation and the Top 8 Finalists will share in $100,000 in educational grants and other prizes. Every screenplay submitted will receive one page of professional feedback included with their submission fee, as well as a code for 70% off the annual subscription to the Save the Cat 4.0 story structure software. Submissions open on February 1st at 12:00a PST.
The top eight screenplays are carefully chosen and will be announced on or around July 8th, with the Grand Prize winning screenplay entering pre-production shortly after.
