Objective

Let’s celebrate great storytelling! Family Friendly Screenwriting Academy wants to find the best of the best of unproduced features in the faith based and family friendly genres.

Do you have an amazing and entertaining story without profanity, vulgarity, nudity, or sexual content? If so, we want to read it!

There is a growing demand for Family Friendly films. The market is crying out for more conservative, yet still compelling content. Family Friendly Screenwriting Academy believes that when writers see growth both in their level of writing, and in their opportunities, they’re able to provide the content that the market is begging for.

FESTIVAL GOAL: To find and showcase quality writing; to raise the standard of scriptwriting in the Family Friendly film genre, and help launch and advance screenwriting careers. Show More

Rules

  • All entrants must be 18 years of age or older.
  • All scripts must be "Family Friendly". For us, this does not necessarily mean it is written for all ages, or of interest to the whole family. It basically means there is nothing that you wouldn't want your child (or your mother) to see or hear if they were to walk into the room during your movie. A story can have real life "grit" and still be presented tastefully. Scripts with profanity, crude or vulgar language, nudity and sexual content WILL BE DISQUALIFIED at the festival’s sole discretion, and no refunds will be issued.
  • Scripts must be FEATURES between 55-120 pages.
  • Submissions must be in English (The script may contain minimal dialogue in other languages, but must have the English translation written in the script.)
  • This festival accepts UNPRODUCED SCRIPTS ONLY
  • Previously submitted / updated scripts are eligible
  • Multiple entries are accepted (submitted separately with their applicable fees)
  • All entries must be an original work for which the entrant owns the rights.
  • It is recommended that your original material be copyrighted.
  • FFSA does not claim any ownership or rights to your scripts.
  • Award Winners give permission to FFSA and its sponsors to use their Name, Script Title, and images (if provided) for promotional purposes.
  • Screenplay submissions must be formatted in the industry standard screenplay format, and submitted as a digital PDF.
  • Scripts must include a title page WITHOUT writers name(s) or contact information.
  • It will not be possible to update or change your file after the final deadline. Please proofread your script, and double check your PDF before uploading.
  • Promotional discounts (if any) must be applied at the time of submission, and no refunds will be issued after submission and payment.
  • FFPRSF reserves the right to increase or decrease fees at any time; extend or change closing dates, announcement dates or event dates as necessary, at its sole discretion.
  • The Festival will communicate with participants via the email address provided. The participant is responsible to provide a correctly spelled email address, and maintain an active email account. Your email address will be added to the Family Friendly Screenwriters database for festival and bootcamp updates, future contest promotions, discount codes, and other notifications. You will have the option to unsubscribe at any time.
  • The decisions and judgements of FFPRSF are final and cannot be disputed.
