Objective

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.

Contest News

2016 ScreenCraft Action & Thriller Screenplay Contest Winners Announced

The Timbermen by Colin Dalvit & Andrew Lahmann (with story contributions by Ben Eisner) has been selected as the Grand Prize Winner of the 2016 ScreenCraft Action & Thriller Screenplay Contest. A bold and character-driven action-horror hybrid, The Timbermen is set in 1878 Washington Territory and centers on a desperate father and son who join a group of rough lumberjacks on a dangerous mission, then must fight to survive ferocious monsters deep in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. The script deftly blends genres and features authentic characters, a strong emotional core, elevated dialogue, and excitingly rendered action sequences.

The Poacher by Travis Opgenorth has been awarded the Runner-Up prize. Ambitious, original and thematically complex, the script tells the story of a Serengeti resident, and haunted former militiaman, who’s forced into poaching ivory to feed his starving family and finds himself gaining unwanted notoriety after shooting a ruthless warlord who comes looking for revenge.

Dalvit & Lahmann will receive $1,500 and a phone call with legendary Die Hard, 48 Hrs. and Commando screenwriter Steven E. de Souza and a top literary manager. Opgenorth will receive $500 and a phone call with a literary manager. Their projects will be submitted to ScreenCraft’s network of agents, managers, producers and studio execs, as will the following finalist scripts:

  • Sawbuck by Mark Strauss
  • Another River by Kimba Henderson
  • Hemophilia by Guy Francisco Polin
  • Jacaranda by Ryan W. Smith
  • Mark of Cain by Jamie Bircoll
  • The Killing Of Sweet Molly Malone by Danny Matier
  • Dispatch by J.M. Levine
  • The Dragon Run by Bradley Stryker


In addition to de Souza, judges this year included: Tanner Mobley, creative executive at Nu Image; Jeanette Francis, development executive at STX Entertainment, and formerly Warner Bros; Ryan Wickers, Director of Development at Luc Besson’s company EuropaCorp; and Fred Spektor, agent at CAA with iconic clients including Morgan Freeman, Pierce Brosnan and Helen Mirren.
