ScreenCraft Family Screenplay Competition
2019 season now closed

About

Calling all family-friendly feature film screenplays!

Families are the most influential moviegoing audience, yet there’s a surprising lack of high-quality films that appeal to the WHOLE family. This contest avoids the genre-bias of some other contests by seeking exclusively screenplays that are life-affirming stories of faith, courage, hope and love. Whether you have a family drama, comedy, animation, or action-adventure film – we have producers and executives who are hungry for high-quality “four-quadrant” projects to package and produce.

Additionally, this contest also celebrates feature film screenplays that uplift, inspire and authentically portray stories, themes and people of faith.


Will your script win?

Past ScreenCraft winners have signed with literary managers and agents at such companies as 3 Arts Entertainment, Anonymous Content, CAA, WME, UTA, Paradigm, ICM and Bellevue Entertainment, and have sold projects to studios and networks.
