Objective

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. Winners will be announced in February. Will your script win?

Deadline/Entry Fees

Expired. Previous Deadline: 12/30/2017
