ReelRebels Entertainment Will Produce and Film Your Screenplay For FREE!

It's our way of giving back to our fellow screenwriters and aspiring filmmakers. We are holding a screenplay contest for all screenwriters in the US to submit their scripts to. The winner will get their screenplay produced and filmed by us for FREE without worrying about finding a crew or money! The writer will retain creative control over the project - such as writer's, story & directing credit. If the writer doesn't want to direct their project, he/she may select a director of their choice , deciding the creative direction, unless they defer this to ReelRebels Entertainment. Once the film has been completed the writer may enter film festivals of their choice or submit to online market's, such as Amazon movies or Netflix etc.

What We’re Looking For:

We want to keep this as simple as possible so you can let your creativity speak for itself. Three simple criteria!

1. Originality
2. Plot
3. Characters

Contest Details

The screenplay contest will consist of two categories. One for feature length screenplays and one for short length screenplays. We will select a winner from each category where we will produce and film the screenplay for FREE! We’ll see the script from pre-production to post-production, which includes providing the film crew and casting for the film while you maintain creative control.
