Pitch Now Screenplay Competition

Final Deadline: 11/30/2018 (expired)

Filmmatic coined a slogan, "Hidden screenplays never get produced". As writers, we spend a lot of our precious time crafting unique scripts, yet we hardly ever employ an equal level of passion when attempting to get our work into the "right hands". The exposure and prestige one can gain from placing or winning a screenplay competition is invaluable, but what do you say this time around we also get you PITCHING! Let's get proactive, let's pick a production company that makes sense for our project, tell them we were a Pitch Now Finalist or Winner, and get them to review our work, now not later ;) All 100 finalists will be able to pitch to a studio or production company of their choice via Virtual Pitch Fest! The competition is open to feature-length and short works, screenplays and teleplays.

Diabolical Horror Film Festival

Final Deadline: 10/23/2018 (expired)

We're an online-only film festival that runs once a year in October with a screenplay competition as well. Shorts, features, web series, music videos, documentaries, scripts, etc. can all be submitted. Creepy physical venues are inviting for ghosts but they limit how many people can actually see your work (not to mention with traditional festivals, you usually have to go there to promote your screening to get people to actually show up even at prestigious ones).
