We are a Five-Star reviews competition. Check for yourself below, and even more on our website, under the "Reviews" category.
The Script Showcase is an International script and authors competition. Since 2016, we awarded 94 winners and selected an additional 348 authors.
The script is the core of any project.
We want to enlighten the raw talent of writing, regardless genre, style, origin, background of the author.
Not everyone knows how to write. We reward ideas, talent, and structure.
If in the wrong hands, a good script may end up as a flat movie, but a bad script never, ever is going to make a groundbreaking film.
If you got theses three winning factors, you have a good chance.
The SSS offer a unique opportunity to talk about your script. Explain your point of view, share your writing process: other writers are interested, and so are we.
Our showcases and award giveaway take place in Los Angeles and California.
NETWORKING is highly recommended and encouraged during the event.
We are entering our 5th year of activity. With about 2 showcases a year, our 10th event just took place in Los Angeles, on Sunset Boulevard, January 22nd, 2020.
