If you’re looking for places to submit a script you’ve written — aside from the better known Sundance Institute, Tribeca Film Institute
and the in-house writing programs at various networks — look no further
than the Nantucket Film Festival Screenplay Competition.
The festival accepts a broad range of scripts: Shorts, features and television pilots (in both 30-minute and 60-minute increments).
The screenplay competitions give writers the chance to have their scripts read by a prestigious jury, receive top industry recognition and win over $7,000 in cash prizes. The winner of the Feature Screenplay competition also gets a one-on-one session with a Showtime executive.
New to Nantucket this year is the Comedic Screenwriter’s Colony. From June 10 – 23, four emerging episodic comedy writers will converge on Nantucket for an immersive residency and mentorship program.
If you still want the chance to get your script in, fear not. The submissions deadline is March 1, a week from today. You can find the submissions page right here.
Late Deadline: March 1
Fees: $60 (Feature), $50 (60 min TV), $40 (30 min TV or Short)
