We felt that creating this festival would give the many sports fanatics out there an outlet for their love of competition. We ask you, the screenwriter, to only submit screenplays that the plot centers around the competition or competitor. We will respectfully decline screenplays that just have a competition scene in them that isn’t pivotal to the story or character.
Some people have asked us to define “sports.” Well, we want to include any subject matter that deals with mental and physical competition for the sake of winning a prize (and not killing anyone along the way to do it). So we’re ready to watch and read any stories from auto racing to badminton and spelling bees to chess.
Our jury and judges are well respected people in the film and sporting industry. Having your film or screenplay in the festival may open doors that may not be available to you. We can’t promise sudden fame and fortune but we’ll do our best to get you noticed.
