Filmmakers and production companies from more than 150 countries are waiting for new scripts.
Award-winning filmmakers and production company representatives read all submitted scripts and select the best ones for awards and/or film production.
Some scenes from some scripts can be acted out by actors at the event or professionally read by them and video-recorded to provide the presentation material for scriptwriters for further promotion.

We connect scriptwriters and filmmakers to help them create the best movies together.
We collect script requests from film production companies and filmmakers who are making movies.
We select scripts from the Globe to highlight the best ones and introduce them to filmmakers and production companies.
