San Francisco International Screenwriting Competition

We are an independent screenwriting competition founded by artists. We want to support serious writers who take on serious subject matter. That’s what we’re all about. We are located in the heart of California and are proud to be the only international screenwriting competition in the Bay Area. We are committed to fostering the careers of local talent as well as finding the next generation of talent from New York, Hollywood, Toronto, and around the world.

If you think you have the next Schindler’s List, Judgement at Nuremburg, Saving Private Ryan, Shawshank Redemption, Lincoln, Reservoir Dogs, 12 Years a Slave, the Godfather, Sling Blade, Frida, or even Shine, we want to read your work!

Our goal is to connect writers with agents, managers, and producers. We just want to read great scripts, so if you’ve written something really special, we want to see it. Submit today!

Standard deadline: October 23, 2019
Late deadline: December 12, 2019
Final deadline: February 6, 2020
