Best Script Awards is a seasonal year-round competition for talented screenwriters from all over the wotld.

We as organizers are filmmakers, producers and entrepreneurs, so we know how difficult it is to show the world that someone appreciates your work. That's why we came up with a unique project in which we involved several jurors from around the world and created a new opportunity to show your script to the world. The competition was established in August 2020 as part of the BEST FILM AWARDS organization based in London, UK. Later, we decided to create a separate screenwrtiting festival Best Script Awards competition.

FilmFreeway ranked our festival among the TOP 25 screenwriting competitions according to the Best Reviewed category in Europe.

The festival is based on a professional approach. The evaluation focuses on the tone of the script, the idea of ​​the script, inventiveness, the characters, the dramatic curve, the credibility of the script, the conflict.

If you win the prize, you can add your project to IMDb:
