Beyond Entertainment produces family-friendly and/or Christian themed content from our studio in Southwest Florida. We are hosting a film, screenplay and music festival to help those in this genre to excel. We will be hosting a live awards ceremony at Beyond Event Center and Live Stream Studio right here at Beyond Entertainment headquarters in sunny southwest, Florida the last weekend in September. A Live, Red Carpet Award Show caps off our weekend of Screenwriting Seminars hosted by Writing Right webshow host and Screenwriter, Scott Michael Branan (The Czar of Hollywood, Million to One, Countdown, World Peace, Deep Within), as well as Director/Producer Jose Nieves (Nieves Films) providing tips for creating content on a budget (without it looking like it). We will be giving tours of our event space and live stream studio while providing multiple networking opportunities through out the weekend to meet and greet those with similar passions.

Trophies will be presented to the first place winners and certificates to second and third places at our film and live stream studio in Cape Coral Florida on the last day of our festival. Laurels are available for all entries becoming official selections, semi-finalists, finalists and winners. Free admission is available for all Official Selected writers, filmmakers and musicians.

    Everyone at the Beyond Entertainment was very kind and professional. I would recommend anyone who has an interest in submitting their work to film fests to indeed, enter into Beyond Entertainment Family Film, Screenwriting & Music Festival.

    This was an amazing festival. The communication was open and timely. Although I was unable to be there in person, having the awards live streamed was a great alternative. I was able to experience the exhilaration of the ceremony from the comfort of my own home. Thank you so much for all your hard work and for recognizing my screenplay, Peace in the Valley.

    I was unable to attend the festival because of distance, so I was happy that I could watch the awards ceremony online.

    My screenplay had been nominated in the action category, and I was surprisingly nervous when the nominees were named. When the winners were named I almost felt like my heart was going to jump out of my chest.

    It was a fabulous experience!
