Do you have a great sci-fi or fantasy script that's ready for the industry? Was E.T. THE EXTRA TERRESTRIAL about an alien visitor or a family drama that explored a child’s understanding of the world? In STAR WARS, when Luke Skywalker swung across a ledge with a princess in his arms, where did the sci-fi end and the fantasy begin? And should THE TRUMAN SHOW even be called a sci-fi film for bending the technology of its setting to tell its story? This contest is a celebration of traditional and idiosyncratic sci-fi and fantasy narratives.
