IMPORTANT: Out of concern for pubic safety, our LIVE EVENT has been POSTPONED from June 13 to a date To Be Determined! We have OCTOBER 3 , 2020 listed as a tentative date but that may change if necessary!
We will keep our play submission entry dates the same in FAIRNESS and GOOD FAITH to all playwrights who have already entered at the respective dates. There will be no additional time to enter plays after April 1 out of respect to those that entered with our initial June 13 event date in mind! You may still enter stage plays until April 1 if you choose to (April 1, 2020 has been our cut off this whole time!)
We want to THANK ALL THOSE THAT HAVE ENTERED in good faith and we will honor you with a great show as planned once this horrible world-wide virus has been properly contained and/or evaluated!

Avalonia 7 Theater Festival is the new sister theater festival to the popular Avalonia Festival for short films (often named a FilmFreeway Top 100 Best Reviewed Festival).
For those of you NEW to FilmFreeway, you must first create a FilmFreeway account (the account itself is free to create!) and upload your script (s) to your project pages (which is also free to do!) Once you have your FilmFreeway account and script (s) uploaded, you are ready to enter Avalonia 7 Theater Festival (and any other festival on here you want to try your hand at!)
Avalonia 7 Theater Festival will showcase 7 original plays on SHOW DATE TO BE DETERMINED at All Beaches Experimental Theater on Neptune Beach in Jacksonville, Florida. Playwrights of all backgrounds and experiences are welcome to enter their original works for the chance at possible production during the festival.
Winning Playwrights will have their play cast, rehearsed and produced by Avalonia 7 Theater Festival at no further cost or responsibility to the playwright. The playwright retains all rights and ownership to the work that have submitted!
The 7 Winning Playwrights will be given 4 VIP access passes to see their work performed to the festival as well as a certificate of achievements to be mailed to them (if in the United States, if international the awards will be emailed to the playwright) and a prize package of door prizes for winning playwrights. Winning playwrights who are able to attend our festival in person (not required) will be encouraged (but not required) to say a few words to the audience after the show's conclusion and to bask in the accolades of our live event audience!
