ScreenCraft Family-Friendly Screenwriting Competition

ScreenCraft Family


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.

Deadline/Entry Fees

Expired. Previous Deadline: 12/31/2020

Notification: March 31st, 2021
