Now approaching its 40th year, the Atlanta Film Festival (ATLFF)-an Academy Award®-qualifying festival-is the area's preeminent celebration of cinema. One of the largest and longest-running festivals in the country, ATLFF invites an audience of nearly 25,000 to experience the moving image by showcasing both emerging artists and filmmakers alongside the industry's most compelling works that push the boundaries of independent cinema.
Since developing our Screenplay Competition in 2008, ATLFF has been working hard to highlight and foster works of talented writers. In our competition, we look for innovative and compelling storytelling, for characters that surprise and challenge us, for words that pop off the page, and for narratives that twist and turn like a country back road. This year we're accepting both feature scripts and pilot scripts; you're more than welcome to submit in both categories.
Feature Scripts may be within 80-130 pages in length. Anything outside of that page range will not be considered for the competition.
Television Scripts may be between 10-70 pages in length. Upon submission, the writer must indicate the nature of the television script: webisode, comedy, drama, or any combination of the above.
Please see "Rules" tab for additional guidelines.
