Objective

The Call for Entries for the 2016 Atlanta Film Festival Screenplay Competition is now open! From April 1 to April 10, 2016, we will be celebrating our 40th anniversary, and we’re looking to you to help us make it our best festival yet.

We are looking for innovative and compelling storytelling, for characters that surprise and challenge you, for words that pop off the page, and for narratives that twist and turn like a country back road. This year we’re accepting both feature scripts and pilot scripts; you’re more than welcome to submit in both categories.

We accept screenplay submissions only through FilmFreeway. To save money, consider submitting your completed film by the Earlybird Deadline on June 20. The Regular Deadline is September 18, the Late Deadline is set for October 23 and the Extended Deadline is November 6.

Rules

The Atlanta Film Festival Screenplay Competition is open to any writer from anywhere in the world.

Feature scripts and television scripts must be the original work of the writer(s). If the script is based on another person’s life, writer(s) must also attach a signed statement acknowledging and approving of adaptation.

No revisions or updated copies will be accepted once entry has been received.

Awards

Feature Script

The three winners will be selected and invited to participate in our annual Writer's Retreat. Over the course of this three day retreat, writers will be working with industry mentors in an effort to workshop their scripts, hash out ideas, re-write scenes, and talk about next stems. The retreat will culminate with a public staged reading of an excerpt of their winning scripts. Winners will also have full access to all events and resources available during the ten-day festival, including screenings, panels, and parties, as well as the opportunity to meet and interact with a host of visiting filmmakers and media professionals from around the world.

Television Script

A single winner will be selected and treated to a one-on-one business dinner with an industry professional. The winner will also have full access to all events and resources available during the ten-day festival, including screenings, panels, and parties, as well as the opportunity to meet and interact with a host of visiting filmmakers and media professionals from around the world.
