GREAT Exposure for Contest Winners & Finalists!

ScreenCraft Action & Adventure Screenwriting Competition

Screencraft Action Thriller


The action genre is the one genre that producers and literary managers have recently requested the most, and which we have the least. So this could be one of our most successful competitions! Our jury is looking for emerging voices in the action movie genre. Whether you have a big-budget, tentpole family adventure movie, or a taut, low-budget action film, we want to read your script. Professional feedback from studio-trained readers is available on all entries.
