ScreenCraft Family-Friendly Screenwriting Competition

ScreenCraft Family

Objective

Families are the most influential moviegoing audience, yet there’s a surprising lack of high-quality films that appeal to the WHOLE family. This contest avoids the genre-bias of some other contests by seeking exclusively scripts that are life-affirming stories of faith, courage, hope and love. Whether you have a family drama, comedy, animation, or action-adventure film – we have producers and executives who are hungry for high-quality “four-quadrant” projects to package and produce.

Additionally, this contest also celebrates scripts that uplift, inspire and authentically portray stories, themes and people of faith.

ScreenCraft Announces Family Friendly Contest Winners

Boys Night Out by Suzanne Johnson has been named the Grand Prize Winner of the inaugural ScreenCraft Family-Friendly Script Contest. The script is about two brothers -– a teen and a six-year-old –- who witness a murder and must evade the killers and the cops during one crazy night in New York City. The script fits firmly in the family-friendly genre but, much like seminal genre favorites Home Alone and Adventures In Babysitting, also boasts an exciting tone and slight edginess that truly cements the story as being four-quadrant. The central sibling dynamic feels authentic and lived-in, and the emotional stakes are convincing.

ScreenCraft has also named Free Inside! by Sarah Brockmann as the contest runner-up. The 1960s-set script boasts a wonderfully original premise: upon discovering that their cereal box toys are really benevolent extraterrestrials, two young boys team up with them to save Earth from a massive alien invasion. The script is fresh, zany and remarkably creative.

ScreenCraft has also named eight Family-Friendly Contest finalists:

Alice Griffith and the Keys of Time by Jeffrey Bradley
Darby Petty and the Lost Treasure by DC Sayre
Dogbiskit: The Fastest Mutt In History by Christopher Sansone
Owney by Wayne Johnson
Remy by James Grayford
The Cat That Saved the (Hollywood) Stars by Philip C. Sedgwick
The Fearless Foursome & The Danville Treasure by Kranti Pally
The Mootants by Derek Taylor Kent
