The Avanti Productions Short Screenplay Competition is not the typical screenwriting competition, but a door to opportunity - because we are now searching for the best short script to produce!


To do this, we have enlisted the help of industry insiders, award winning directors, producers, professional writers, and high-profile actors to read and select.


Writers can submit short film scripts only. The contest is open to all genres.


We are open to receiving submissions in the following languages: English, French, Italian, Spanish, and Romanian. If you are making a submission in any other language than English you should also include an English translation of your script as a standard. We will not be able to consider submissions not backed by an English translation.


This competition is open to SHORT FILIM SCRIPTS - up to 30 pages (between 8-15 is recommended).


Avanti Productions & Management is dedicated to creating some of the world's most original,  exciting, mind-bending, visually stunning, and brilliantly written independent films - and we want you to be a part of the journey and the magic.
