The LAUNCH is different than any other screenplay competition you’ve ever entered. We don’t just promise meetings with industry people to pitch your screenplay, we will actually make your movie! We also will get the top three winners representation and give $100,000 in education grants to the top 8 winners.
The top eight screenplays are carefully chosen and will be announced on or around July 7th, with the Grand Prize winning screenplay entering pre-production shortly after.
