The Screenwriter Showcase based at Pinewood Studios is a quarterly event aimed at enriching works in development by workshopping new scripts from unsung talents and introducing producers to screenwriters - all to bring your career to life!

The Showcase will consist of script readings with professional actors at our headquarters in the world-famous Pinewood Studios - home of blockbuster franchises such as James Bond and Star Wars.

The reading is followed by feedback from everyone in the room and a focus group centred around the next stages of development. Feedback is crucial for any creative looking to succeed; this is an invaluable opportunity that will benefit any screenwriter.

You'll find free content on our YouTube Channel, such as live workshops, interviews with filmmakers, news updates, and more. Subscribe!

    The is a great platform for people who are serious about their writing and who also seek out advice from those more knowledgeable in that field.

    The team have been very supportive with their information, I look forward to meeting them in person when I visit their HQ at Pinewood studios. Great experience.

    If you're looking for a festival/competition to enter with a meaningful and tangible reward for being selected, look no further than Lift Off Networks Screenwriter Showcase.

    Massive thanks to the team at Pinewood for having us down to table read my feature screenplay have had it cancelled back in December due to COVID. Great communication all the way. The team are super professional, friendly and knowledgeable. A great experience that will only serve to improve the next draft of the script.

    100% Recommended.

    It was a true thrill to be selected for the Screenwriter Showcase. The Lift-Off team truly care about writers and filmmakers. The read through and feedback discussion with the talented cast of actors was both fun and informative.

    Really glad you enjoyed the experience John-Mark. The team all had a great time reading the script and then being a part of the read through. Do keep us updated on the project's progress!

  • Richard Wilson

    I've been part of a few festivals throughout the years, but getting the opportunity to have real actors read-through your script, and talk your project over, is the single best experience I've had. What a terrific opportunity. Thank you to everybody involved. Get your script ready and then submit to this fest! Thanks again to everybody involved - Rich

    Thanks for this Richard. This is always a favoruite to attend amongst the staff here at Lift-Off. Always fun hearing a script come to life and giving notes to the filmmakers. Hope the project is going well!

  • Lift-Off is for do'ers not for wait'ers; having cleared that out of the way do not expect anything less than a phenomenal experience filled with the kind of momentous energy that sends you on to the next phase of your fillmmaking career. Siskel and Ebert two thumbs up sort of thing!
