The Austin Film Festival’s Script Competition is open for entries! This competition is a great way for screenwriters to get some exposure, and of course, compete for a chance to place, which can open doors that otherwise might take years to walk through. But, regardless of placement, all entrants receive free reader comments and will get feedback on their script from seasoned readers.
Submission deadlines are:
- Early Deadline: March 26, 2021
- Regular Deadline: April 16, 2021
- Late Deadline: May 21, 2021
In addition to feature screenplays and teleplay pilots and specs, we also accept short screenplays, digital series scripts, stage plays, and fiction podcast scripts. More information on all script competitions can be found here: Austin Film Festival Script Competitions
