CineStory Extends Deadline to March 24th

There are hundreds of screenwriting contests but only CineStory offers all semi-finalists and finalists a chance to attend its prestigious writer's retreat in the mountains of Idyllwild, California. Each attendee gets four one-on-one mentor meetings, as well as participating in numerous panels and group discussions on topics such as: pitching, finding representation, new media markets and story concepts that work.

In addition, the winner is awarded $2000 and a year-long mentorship with an industry pro. CineStory mentors are all working screenwriters, managers, agents and producers. Past competition winners include Academy Award nominated Mark Fergus & Hawk Ostby ("Children of Men") and writer/director Greg Marcks ("11:14" starring Hilary Swank and Ben Foster).
