CATEGORY RULES
ReelHeART Feature Screenplay Competition

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.

The majority of screenplay competitions require that you pay extra for feedback for your script.

ReelHeART does NOT charge extra for Feedback. We provide ALL entrants with 1-3 pages of Feedback. Not just the Winners.

ALL Scripts regardless of placement in the ReelHeART Feature Screenplay Competition receive written coverage via email.

You heard the buzz since we introduced the Feature Screenplay Competition. The excitement still hasn’t stopped. Do NOT miss out on submitting your script for 2014.

Our 2009 2nd place screenwriter got top literary agent representation at the end of an exciting week at ReelHeART 2009. In 2011 TWO of the Top 3 Scripts were by the same writing team and we also had our very FIRST International screenwriter who took home the 1st Place prize to Scotland! 2012, ALL Top 3 Feature Screenwriters were won by WOMEN!

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. We PREFER 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.

* If sending your script by mail, scripts must be attached with brass brads/fasteners
* If sending your script by mail you MUST send 2 hard copies of your script
* Save the Environment and help ReelHeART be a 'green fest' by sending your scripts via email

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

If not using software, please format your script using the guideline for script formatting at Film School Online
