INTRO
The script is the core of any project.
We want to enlight the raw talent of writing. 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.

EXPERIENCE
The SSS will have you experience :
- AWARD giving in Los Angeles once a year.
- NETWORKING during the event.

The Script and Storyboard Showcase select the best works we receive, then we showcase the selected artist during the event and reward the winners during the award ceremony in Los Angeles.

Our first edition took place on May 5, in the Echo Park Film Center, right on Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles.

The festival is now trimestrial. Each 3-months edition will end with its finalists and winners, which will be notified by the end of the 3 months.

Then for the annual screening, all the winners for August, November, February and May will get to talk to the annual screening event in Los Angeles. No added fee, you have nothing to do : we keep you posted.

    Very good event. Guest speaker, Director/producer Johnny Martin was really informative. Just need a little more technical preparation. Otherwise great packed event.

    Thank you Renee. All the best for our next script and the continuity of this one !

  • Kirby Wright

    Great communication here and really enjoyed the Q&A onstage and impromptu interview in the lobby on the red carpet. If you want an interesting North Hollywood/Studio City experience I'd highly recommend this reasonably priced festival.

    Thanks you for this review. Yes, this year has been huge and we had so many scriptwriters coming, it was great.
    We do want to support authors and first time scriptwriters, but at the end of the day, you made it to the finals because your work was good. Congrats.
