Will my film get a physical screening?
Winners from this year's Covid-compatible online event will be awarded with a physical screening at Austin Lift-Off Film Festival 2022. Nominations for our annual awards ceremony are also up for grabs, which will all be screened at the world famous Pinewood Studios, UK.
The top 5 Screenplays will be showcased across our Network platform, featured in the Lift-Off newsletter which is sent to our 35,000 filmmakers, and shared across social media.
Screenwriters will be invited to include their work on this database, a curation of quality scripts that are looking for production.
Lift-Off members are actively looking for projects to develop. They can use the portal to find their next potential projects, and contact the writers directly to discuss the optioning of scripts, development and rights. All entries should be completed scripts, short or feature length, and you should be actively looking for collaboration or development.
