ScreenCraft Family Script Contest

ScreenCraft Family Script Contest

Writing a feature film that the entire family will love? 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 screenplays 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 feature film screenplays that uplift, inspire and authentically portray stories, themes and people of faith.
