Our aim is to forge an independent screenwriting competition that will launch the careers of cinema’s next generation of great writers and artists. We want our competition to be a bridge between up and coming artists and the talent agents and managers that will ultimately put them in front of studio executives in both Canada and the US. We are also passionate about introducing them to the various producers and production teams that call our city their home.

Our city has a long history of nurturing and showcasing the most talented filmmakers in the entertainment industry. We want to give screenwriters the same level of exposure. We want to develop writers to work on studio films as well as high end independents. We are an independent screenwriting competition that wants to inspire, support, and develop writers at all levels to make great films that leave others touched, moved and inspired. And we love all kinds of scripts and stories from studio blockbusters to art house fare. No two paths are the same and no two stories are either. We accept scripts from all over the world not just the US and Canada and from artists of all shapes and sizes, colors and ethnicities, sexes and sexual orientations.

Our aim is to open doors for aspiring writers in all genres the same way Sundance, Venice, Edinburgh, and Cannes open doors for filmmakers.

We reward winning screenwriters with various prizes including distribution of your script to top industry executives at several production companies and distributors in New York, LA, and Toronto as well as to our database of A list agents, managers, and festival winners on both coasts in both the US and Canada who are looking for clients and material to produce. Last year, one of our finalists signed with one of Beverly Hills most prestigious talent management companies.

2019’s grand prize winner was personally introduced to six talent managers and producers and was given a one hour consultation with the top manager at Fictional Entity.

Please note that we do not advertise who we will be introducing our grand prize winner to as we prefer to tailor the introduction to the individual writer’s style so as to get them the most benefit. For example, if our winner wrote a drama, we wouldn’t be connecting them with people who specialize in comedy. Also, only our Grand Prize Winner and top two Finalists will receive industry distribution and prizes. Semi-Finalists will only be rewarded by recognition like in most screenwriting competitions.
