Objective

ScriptFest and the Great American PitchFest were created by writers, for writers – just like you. The event started in Canada with the first Great Canadian PitchFest in 2003. Thirteen years later, the event has expanded to Los Angeles, California and London, England. The event has helped thousands of writers from around the globe to connect with industry decision makers.

ScriptFest, the ScriptFest Master Series, and the Great American PitchFest were started as a way to help other writers move their careers forward, and make ‘finding the door’ just a little bit easier. Writers who attend our event have been hired for writing assignments, signed with agents or managers, and had their screenplays optioned. This is a business about relationships, and thousands of writers started those relationships and their careers at our events.

This year we've added the Script Fest Screenwriting Competition as a unique way to help more writers get the attention they deserve from producers, managers, and agents. Finalists will be recognized with special lanyards while pitching that identify them as having a winning script - this lets the executives know that they're definitely talking with someone who isn't just great at pitching, but they can follow through with great writing as well.

ScriptFest and the Great American PitchFest are organized by a group of writers and producers dedicated to helping others to make the connections they need to get their scripts and projects produced. This entire event is yours as much as it is ours, so please share your experiences with us and help to make it the best it can be. If there is a particular company you want to pitch to, let us know and we’ll invite them to attend. If there are classes you would like to take, we’ll add them to our lineup. Tell us your thoughts and email us at info@scriptfest.com.

  1. Screenplays cannot be submitted over 120 pages without festival permission. Screenplays can be in any format (Feature, TV, Short) as long as they do not exceed the page limit.
  2. Screenplays submitted must not have been previously sold or produced unless said sale or production was competed with no financial gain to the writer.
  3. All deadlines are at 11:59pm PST on the date listed. Any deadline alteration or promotion of any kind does not make any entry valid of a refund of any kind.
  4. There are no refunds for any submitted screenplay. Coupons may not be applied to previously submitted scripts.
  5. There is no limit on the number of scripts a writer or writing team may submit.
  6. Prizes are award per script and teams of writers are expected to divide prizes on their own accord.
  7. The decision of the judges will be final and cannot be contested in any manner. There is no score on a scorecard that guarantees advancement to the next level as advancement will be based on all score in the competition.
  8. The contest reserves the right to delay announcements for any reason. Delay may last up to but never more than 90 days. While we never anticipate any delays, such delays will not alter the standing of any screenplay entry and will qualify no script for a refund under any circumstance.
