The SFG Short Screenplay Contest is designed to reward the craftsmanship of the screenplay writer and to ensure that his or her work sees the light of film.
A movie’s success, feature or short, depends on one basic element: story. It takes a great deal of talent to write a good feature; but we feel it takes even more talent to craft a good short. If you have the ability to move an audience in less than 15 minutes, then you deserve a world of accolades.
Although we can’t give you the world, we can provide an opportunity for your script to become a celluloid reality.
THE DEADLINE FOR 2004 IS MARCH 31.
$10,000 worth of production/post goods and services toward your project. Last year’s sponsors included Kodak, Cinelease, Chapman-Leonard, Panavision and AVID.
We keep scripts on file for production companies and individual producers and directors who are searching for projects. We will match their needs with your scripts, but we won’t submit anything to anybody without your permission first. This is great additional way to get exposure and simply get your projects out there!

Note: If you are submitting as a director (or submitting a director), we require the project’s director to provide a one-page that outlines his/her vision of the film. If your project does not have a director attached, we will assist you in finding a director*. On the application form, simply mark “none” under the subject “Director:”.
