Including Fest’s with Screenplay Competitions
It’s Film Festival season once again dear Film Freaks. Which will you submit to and attend?
If you perform your own Google search you’ll find a number of commercial websites that provide a Directory of Film Festivals. To save you the time and frustration, I’ve provided you with the following Link to IMDB’s Film Festival Directory, which is rather extensive. Please note that some of these Fest’s do conduct Screenplay competitions, though in IMDB’s Directory they do not indicate which of them do or do not. If you have a Finished Short Film, Feature Film, or work in process, this directory can be of immense help. Proceeding the IMDB Link I have provided my own FILM FREAKS Directory of Festivals that do conduct Screenplay Competitions of various kinds.
IMDB FILM FESTIVAL DIRECTORY
of Film Fest Screenplay Competitions
NOTE: Descriptions are provided by each Festival Promoter as displayed in Search Engine results. Some Fest’s listed have run their course for the year, they have been included in order that you might know of their existence for future reference. --- Also note that some are Genre specific; some are take Shorts only.
DISCLAIMER: This Directory is provided to you as a resource only. No guarantee of the quality of any one of these Festivals is implied. The order they appear in is random and is not indicative of any preference on the part of Rick Denny or FILM FREAKS ASYLUM. Please conduct your own research of and for each Festival in advance of submitting your Screenplay(s) to them.

Rick Says: “This is a poorly formatted and difficult site to negotiate. After spending far too much time trying to figure out if they actually do take script submissions, I went to their Categories Sub-Link, which I’ve provided here. --- There I discovered that, they do. The rest is up to you.
There may be more out there that I have yet to uncover, and new ones may come to the fore. If I find others I’ll update this Directory. If you know of any, would you please send me an email informing me of them so that I can include those as well.
Send any all replies, questions, comments, or, in my humble estimation, well deserved praise to:
