The only screenplay competition founded by WGA writer-producers and featuring Oscar-Emmy-WGA Award-winning judges with vital industry connections.

The only screenplay contest​ where winning feature and TV pilot writers are invited to a Live Line Notes & Consultation session with an award-winning WGA writer-producer.​

Every word of every page of your script will be read and analyzed by established Hollywood film and television professionals.

Hollywood’s decision-makers are in constant search of today's most promising writers...and they start that search right here​.

​​Santa Barbara--Home of the famed Santa Barbara International Film Festival* and home to major celebrities...

What happens to your script when you enter
​The Santa Barbara International Screenplay Awards?

​• Your screenplay, TV script, or short feature script is given an exclusive file number and is immediately uploaded into our firewall-protected data portal.
• Once the virus-free integrity of your pdf file is verified, it is then made available to a confidential team of professional reader-analysts with significant industry experience in the evaluation of essential screenplay elements at every genre level.
• There are no unpaid interns or amateur readers involved in our process at any time.
• Your script is then read from cover-to-cover, word-for-word, and evaluated against professional marketplace standards.
• Scores are assigned; written analysis (far more than "coverage") is then composed, edited, and validated by members of the Senior Judging Panel.

Why do so many writers trust the judges at
The Santa Barbara International Screenplay Awards?

"If you want honest "feedback' of your work, this is where you can get it. (unlike other competitions that fling out opinionated responses and label it "feedback") the Santa Barbara Awards easily eclipses all the other competitions with their Academy feedback." ~~ Terrence Selleck, Reno, NV

"I have entered several projects into the Santa Barbara International Screenplay Awards and got great insights and feedback on the first 109 pages each time. I paid extra for the more Writers Room feedback and it was well worth it. Everything here is really a class act." ~~ Lindsay Coogan, Atlanta, GA

Festival attendees come out to walk the "dREaD Carpet" dressed in their favorite costumes and get to meet the filmmakers during our mixers and Q&A sessions after film screenings.

THE UK FILM FESTIVAL SCRIPT COMPETITIONS
3 exciting categories.
1) Feature Script
2) 3 Minute Script
3) 10 Minute Script
Unlike other script competitions UKFF doesn’t just give awards or money as a prize but aims to get their winning scripts into production. In fact, they are well known for successfully connecting scriptwriters to the film industry and getting the films made. With 8 of their winners’ scripts made in to films (2 of which went on to win Crystal Bears at the Berlin Film Festival); 2 in preproduction; and a further 4 optioned - their record speaks for itself.
As a previous feature script winner, Joadie Jurgova says -
“Entering The UK Film Festival’s screenplay competition was the best chance I have ever taken. It took my script and breathed new life into it, attaching an award-winning director and placing it with a prestigious international production company in less than a year. The support since winning has been phenomenal, respectful and generous. If you are looking for a script competition that you can place your trust in, this is it.“

The UK Film Festival does more than just support feature scripts. Ever since the Short script competitions began a winning script has gone into production or preproduction and 5 of the writers' resulting films have subsequently gone on to be multi-award winning at film festivals around the world including, the Berlinale, Aesthetica, Bilbao, Galway and Underwire. The films have been Official Selection in 41 other festivals and 3 have gained prestigious distribution deals.
Winners will receive immediate marketing to the industry, winner's laurels and the associated publicity. Winners and runners up in each category will also receive the latest version of Final Draft 12 (value $250) with many new features, as well as a free 4 month InkTip Pro Membership. As you know, producers have made more than 400 films from scripts and writers they found through InkTip.

Entering its seventh year, Festival of Cinema NYC will be taking place from August 4th - 13th, 2023. The festival welcomes filmmakers and attendees to the legendary Regal UA Midway theater in Forest Hills Queens, New York, with additional programming that includes workshops and panels at the Queens Library at Forest Hills.

As an IMDB qualifying festival who has consistently landed on FIlmFreeway's Top 100 reviewed list, Festival of Cinema NYC is quickly becoming New York City's premiere festival for the best in Independent Film. Festival of Cinema NYC is designed to get maximum exposure for todays emerging filmmakers and help those that are seeking distribution for their film. Our incredible PR team works around the clock to ensure a large attendance at each screening. In addition, every filmmaker is given a post screening Q&A and a chance to interact with attendees and distribution scouts.

From Red Carpet Press Events to Industry Networking Nights to the Opening, Closing and Awards party - filmmakers are offered numerous opportunities to get their film in front of the right the people, and screened before large audiences. To date Festival of Cinema NYC has helped over fifteen films, both short and feature length, land a distribution deal.

Our programmers look for the best in truly independent films. All films selected come from independent filmmakers that put their blood, sweat and tears into their productions. Every film selected and screened is eligible for an award.

Festival of Cinema NYC seeks independent films and un-produced scripts of all lengths, genres and subjects. Whether your film is a drama, comedy, horror, sci-fi, fantasy, documentary, experimental, LGBTQ, animation, even if it tackles social issues - we want to show it! Our Opening Night, Closing Night, and special screening events (like our Midnight Madness and Underground Films presentations) are all selected from the very best submissions we receive. Plus, every filmmaker that submits a film will automatically receive a one-year subscription to Videomaker Digital Magazine, a leading subscription service that focuses on guiding independent filmmakers with online tutorials and publications (a $20 value). All selected filmmakers get VIP passes that allow entry into all our screenings, events, and parties.

Because Festival of Cinema NYC was founded by independent filmmakers, we understand the needs and challenges that filmmakers face. Our festival staff is committed to offering filmmakers the opportunities they seek to promote and ultimately have their film seen and sold. Our festival’s growing reputation of top-notch independent films has consistently attracted more distributors every year, making it a possibility to interact with distributors directly! One of the key components to Festival of Cinema NYC's success, is making sure each filmmaker and their film get the proper attention and publicity that they deserve. Our publicity department works around the clock to ensure that filmmakers get as much coverage in news and local media. Filmmakers at the festival have had their films covered in various news publications around Queens and New York City, including the N.Y. Times, the NY Daily News, The NY Post, The Queens Chronicle, CBSN and NY1 News on Spectrum cable. Attending filmmakers each get a Q&A following their screening, giving them the chance to engage our audience.

Additionally, Festival of Cinema NYC hosts panels, workshops and seminars that strongly appeal to filmmakers and those looking to break into the film industry. In previous. years seminars on distribution and production resources, as well as workshops by industry leaders such as Sag-Aftra and Seed & Spark, were held.

Festival of Cinema NYC is a competitive festival that accepts films and media of all lengths, genres and subjects, with awards in 17 categories. Past Jury members have included Anna Garduno, Executive Producer at Netflix; Amy Peters, Emmy award winner; Doug LeClaire, founder of Asbury Shorts USA; Isil Bagdadi, president of distribution at Cavu Pictures; and David Josh Lawrence, head of acquisitions at Glass House Pictures . Winners walk away with an amazing custom statuette as well as prizes being offered from some of our amazing sponsors (prizes have included a cash prize towards your next production, screenwriting and budgeting software, a consultation with a distributor, and opt-in distribution deals.)
