Film My Script - a screenplay competition open to all screenwriters who are at least 18 years old. Scripts must be between 6 - 10 pages. The winner's script will be filmed by FMS. The budget will not exceed $8000 so scripts should not be location specific. All genres are acceptable although scripts regarded by FMS as experimental, bizarre or offensive will disqualify themselves.
To be read, all scripts must be in English and formatted to industry standards. Preference will be given to scripts that are clear, simple, easy reads and exclude camera direction or technical issues. Script revisions of any sort are not acceptable. No script is fully entered into the competition until both the script and the participation fee have been received. There will be no refunds. All submissions must be through FilmFreeway.
Hitchcock said three things are essential for a great film; the script, the script and the script. What we're looking for is a great story that's well written.
Filming of the winning script will commence within six months of the winner being announced. The winning screenwriter will retain full copyright of her/his script and be fully credited as the screenwriter in the film credits and on an IMDb page dedicated to the finished film that FMS will set up. FMS reserve the right to amend or depart from the filmed script as they see fit. The screenwriter will receive a digital copy of the finished film for just showreel and their personal, private use, only. This is because FMS will retain full rights of the finished film. FMS will enter the finished film into at least 5 film festivals chosen by FMS.
All award decisions made by FMS are final and no correspondence will be entered into. Good luck.
