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

ScreenCraft Names Action/Thriller Contest Winner

Get It Together by Matthew Ryan has been selected as the Grand Prize Winner of the 2017 ScreenCraft Action & Thriller Screenplay Contest. A clever, endlessly entertaining and surprisingly funny bank robbery thriller, Get It Together centers on a "charming no-hoper" who, flat broke and desperate to buy a home, uses all the skills he's learned from his robbery expert cop ex-girlfriend to rob a bank – only to have his robbery interrupted by a bigger, more professional band of thieves.

Milwaukee by Barry P. Ambrose & Christopher Stapleton has been awarded the Runner-Up prize. Ambitious, evocative and narratively complex, the script is a neo-noir set in the 1950s that tells the story of a hard-as-nails cop who finds himself protecting the widow of a recently slain officer, and in the process uncovering a far-reaching conspiracy involving the mob, the police department and the local government.

Ryan will receive $1,500 and hand-picked industry introductions. Ambrose & Stapleton will receive $500 and will have their script circulated to ScreenCraft's network of agents, managers, producers and studio execs, as will the following finalist scripts:

  • Bury Your Dead by Richard McGovern
  • Danger Close by Adam Skelter
  • The Iron Horse of Lucy Steele by Paul Zeidman
  • A Word In A Glass Mind by Miranda Fennimore
  • 17 Bullets by Van Jensen
  • The Caretaker by Hussain Pirani
  • Pawns by Erik Lowe
  • Running Dark by John Lau
