Superficial Studios is dedicated to working with screenwriters and filmmakers with the funding and recognition hurdles faced by the filmmaking industry's marginalization of women, POC, and LGBTQ filmmakers and screenwriters by leveraging the time, talent and treasure of some incredible people, to get their films made. Our own Andrew Hass and Kynda Laufmann run Lost in the Woods Productions and will be utilizing all of their time and talent to make this venture possible.

It is hard for anyone to get a film made. It is much harder for women, people of color and anyone from the LGBTQ community. Our focus is on the screenwriters who have been taking the long way around for too long. You have stories to tell and we want to help you tell them. That’s why we’re here.

The winning script will be optioned by Superficial Studios to be produced into a short film for promotion and festival submission by Superficial Studios. The contracted production will begin within 90 days of the script contest's completion.
