Submit Your Screenplay to the 2017 Screenplay Competition
Now in its tenth year, the annual ATLFF Screenplay Competition continues to grow both in submission numbers and quality. Not only do past winners credit the distinction with attention from agents—Stella Meghie's winning screenplay from the 2011 competition became JEAN OF THE JONESES, an Official Selection of the 2016 ATLFF starring Sherri Shepherd, Erica Ash and Taylour Paige.
The 2016 Screenplay Competition saw a record number 482 submissions. You can view the finalists and winners here. All Feature Screenplay and Pilot Screenplay winners are invited to attend the annual Screenplay Writers' Retreat, during which selected industry mentors review the winning entries and assist in the polishing process.
Feature scripts and television scripts must be the original work of the writer(s). Feature Scripts may be within 80-130 pages in length. Anything outside of that page range will not be considered for the competition. Television Scripts may be between 10-70 pages in length. Upon submission, the writer must indicate the nature of the television script: webisode, comedy, drama, or any combination of the above. Screenplays must be submitted in English.
