‘Most screenwriting competitions give writers a chance to win prizes and money. That’s cool but what writer’s REALLY want is for someone to make their script into a film. Filmmakers awards prizes and money but more importantly, it gives writers exposure to industry personnel who can actually take the script from the page to the screen. That exposure sets Filmmakers apart.
Heather Ferrell

‘Filmmakers’ was one of three competitions a friend in the industry recommended.

Script Magazine and HollywoodLitSales comment on this contest from time to time. After entering it once, I was hooked by the professionalism of the staff and by the feedback provided through the announcement of results. It matters knowing at what point your script falls short, if it does. It helps the learning process.
