Word of Mouth is a Powerful thing. We thank all our past entrants who had a hand in helping us achieve this very important Milestone!

Unlike most other Feature Script Competitions we do NOT charge extra for feedback.

We provide 1-3 pages of feedback on ALL scripts, not just the Winners.

This competition is open to screenplay writers of all levels. This competition is open to scripts of ALL Genres. Your script must be a "Feature Film" script.

UNLIKE 'other' Screenplay' Competitions, we do NOT Charge extra for full coverage. Your entry fee INCLUDES 1-3 pages of coverage to EVERYONE, not just the Winners. Your feedback will be emailed to you sometime between April and/or after the conclusion of the festival.

ReelHeART Feature Screenplay Competition

You heard the buzz from the last 7 years. The excitement still hasn’t stopped. Do NOT miss out on submitting your script for 2011 - Our 2009 2nd place screenwriter got top literary agent representation at the end of an exciting week at ReelHeART 2009. And we think big things are in store for our 2014 Top 3 Winners!

ReelHeART 2011 and 2014 had 2 winning scripts from the same screenwriter! And our very FIRST International winner from Scotland who took home 1st Place. ReelHeART 2012 - All Top 3 Winners were WOMEN from Scotland/USA, England UK, and Africa/USA.

This competition is open to screenplay writers of all levels. This competition is open to scripts of ALL genres. Your script must be a “Feature Film” script.

Please try to keep your script length to 120 pages MAX but preferably less. We'll work with you to pare it down. We do have a margin that it can be over. But the shorter the better for all. A shorter script is more commercially viable.

* Save the Environment and help ReelHeART be a 'green fest' by sending your scripts via email or online at WAB

Please use ‘WARNER BROTHERS’ style set up in your Final Draft or script writing software.
