Objective

The BlueCat Screenplay Competition, now in its 21st year, is accepting submissions for its 2019 competition.

Founded in 1998 by award-winning writer Gordy Hoffman, BlueCat has supported thousands of screenwriters through written analysis provided to all entrants, many of whom have gone on to successful careers in the film and television industry. BlueCat's Alumni include:

Aaron Guzikowski (Verve/Madhouse) wrote PRISONERS and the remake of PAPILLON, which will open in theatres on August 28th, 2018.

Fergal Rock wrote DEPARTURES starring Nina Dobrev and Maisie Williams, which opens in theatres this year. An early draft of DEPARTURES entitled Calvin & Skye won the BlueCat Fellini Award.
