Rules

We accept completed scripts that fall into the following categories:

  • Studio-level feature screenplays (must be action/adventure, comedy, drama, horror/thriller, or sci-fi/fantasy)

If submitting a pitch only, a 1-2 page synopsis or full treatment is acceptable. Entries can be submitted into more than one category for separate entry fees. Animation is allowed for any category, including Media. Please review the rules and restrictions below to avoid disqualification.

  • The script is not currently under a representation, option, or purchase agreement.
  • Entries in the screenwriting genre categories must be intended for a studio market.
  • Writers who have sold, optioned, or produced scripts in the past are eligible; however, the material submitted to First Look must not have been produced as a feature or TV series. There are otherwise no restrictions on amateur or professional status. The First Look Project is open to writers of all levels.
  • Preference may be given to material that has not seen wide circulation.
  • The material is wholly original, or you retain the rights to the work submitted and can submit proof of such.
