Rules

FESTIVAL OVERVIEW
  • Each screenplay you enter will be read and critiqued by three other writers.    
  • By submitting your script, you agree to review and provide thoughtful, constructive feedback on three other writers' scripts.
  • Each participant will complete a feedback form for scripts that are assigned to them. This will ensure the review is constructive and helpful. Contestants will give (and receive) specific feedback on things like Title, Plot, Character Arcs, Story Structure, Dialogue, Uniqueness, Formatting and more!
  • After the final entry deadline, scripts will be distributed for review. Participants must read and review, using the feedback form, three assigned scripts within a three-week period - demonstrating that the scripts were thoroughly read and thoughtfully critiqued. 
  • After the review period is complete, you will receive the feedback / report cards for your script(s). You will only receive your report cards if you have completed your three assigned reviews. 
  • During the Family Friendly Screenwriting Bootcamp, all participants will have access to three live-online screenwriting workshops on targeted elements of screenwriting. Learn actionable techniques that you can immediately apply to your scripts.
  • Peer Favorite winners will be announced and awards distributed.
  • FFPRSF will maintain communication, providing updates and guidance throughout the process.
  • Participants can submit more than one screenplay (up to a maximum of two), but each must be submitted separately with their applicable fee. The participant agrees to review 3 other scripts PER ENTRY (that means 6 script reviews for two entries).
