Call for Entries now open for 2016 Atlanta Film Festival Screenplay Competition!

The Call for Entries for the 2016 Atlanta Film Festival Screenplay Competition is now open! From April 1 to April 10, 2016, we will be celebrating our 40th anniversary, and we’re looking to you to help us make it our best festival yet.

We are looking for innovative and compelling storytelling, for characters that surprise and challenge you, 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. 

We accept screenplay submissions only through FilmFreeway. To save money, consider submitting your completed film by the Earlybird Deadline on June 20. The Regular Deadline is September 18, the Late Deadline is set for October 23 and the Extended Deadline is November 6. 

Films must comply with category requirements and filmmakers must complete the process and payment to be considered for ATLFF '16. Have questions? Check out our Screenplay Submission FAQ.
