SVSLab is now accepting original screenplays and television plots from aspiring screenwriters. The top three High Scribe finalists will enjoy exclusive residency at the SVFF, where they are housed and mentored by established screenwriters, included in parties and provided a Filmmaker’s Pass. The High Scribe winner receives a cash prize of $1,000 and career mentoring from top industry experts.
In the past, the honor of High Scribe has generated buzz for writers and helped launch careers. In SVSLab’s first year, “Syriana” writer Steve Gaghan helped High Scribe winner Cody Tucker secure an agent, and the years that followed have held up to a similar pattern.
SVSLab – High Scribe Screenplay Competition submissions are being accepted at the SVFF website. Below are a list of submission requirements and deadlines provided by the SVSLab.
