The 2014 Family-friendly Screenplay Contest is open for entries!

Calling all faith-friendly and family-friendly feature film screenplays! Families are the most influential movie-going audience, yet there's a surprising lack of high-quality family films that appeal to the WHOLE family. This contest avoids the genre-bias of some other contests by seeking exclusively screenplays that are life-affirming stories of faith, courage, hope and love. Whether you have a family drama, comedy, animation, or action-adventure film, WE WANT TO READ YOUR SCRIPT. We have producers who are hungry for high-quality "four-quadrant" projects to package and produce. Will your script win?
