For years, ReelHeART has been mentoring Screenwriters from around the world to get their Screenplay into the best possible shape for the next and most sought after step in their careers --- A Hollywood Option!

ALL Scripts receive FREE Valuable Industry Coverage from Industry Insiders!

If Hollywood doesn't come calling, then maybe the next step is representation from a Manager, Agent, or an Interested 3rd Party who has seen your screenplay as part of the judging process at ReelHeART or we've sent to a production house who makes the kind of films your screenplay is about.

Or maybe your ReelHeART experience gets you so inspired to make your next re-write so crisp and clean that you go on to make your Screenplay into a Film and enter it the following year and win a Prize!

Whatever the next step is for you as a Screenwriter, we mentor you by going through each and every screenplay entered with a fine tooth comb to get your script ready for that next re-write, or get your screenplay 'Table-Read' ready for a Live Festival Audience.

All Scripts entered receive valuable industry related coverage - for FREE

    Thank you so much for selecting "Monster" as the winner of the short script competition. The table read of the script was fantastic and I highly recommend submitting to this competition. The ratings do not go high enough to describe the hospitality and encouragement from the festival coordinators. Thank you to everyone involved!!!

  • Thank you for selecting my frantic witty absurd surreal comedy script/screenplay Loonatoona for Semi-Finalist

    Outstanding festival that really tries to provide filmmakers with a hugely valuable resource.

    Great people to work with and their dedication to the filmic arts is evident in so many ways. The fact they converted the fest into an online experience and still made it a triumph speaks volumes.

    This is a festival devoted to that which it celebrates.

    Had the honor of having my script read through, with a Q&A following. While I'm far from the social butterfly that tends to excel at such things, ReelheART made it easy and comfortable. My thanks and my gratitude.
