Long Island International Film Expo 2015
Scriptwriting Contest

The Long Island International Film Expo is now offering a scriptwriting contest.

LIIFE is looking for great storytelling. As a result, the contest will be structured in two parts: Writers are asked to submit a short treatment for a feature-length screenplay they have already written. A group of finalists will be selected, and those writers will be invited to submit their whole screenplays.

For the first round, writers should submit a treatment that is in 12-point type, does not exceed 650 words, and does not exceed one page. Please do not submit a treatment unless you have already written the screenplay.

To be eligible, the script cannot have been optioned, nor can the writer and/or the screenplay be represented by a manager or agent. Final scripts must also be between 90 – 120 pages.

The treatments will be read by a team of industry professionals (screenwriters, directors, producers, etc). The top ten treatments will make it to the final round and will be invited to submit their complete screenplays. Those ten screenplays will then be read by production company Snapper Films, who will then choose the winning submission and two runner-ups.

The winning script will be submitted for consideration and critique to a reputable literary agent. It will be the final decision of the agency to determine whether or not it chooses to represent the winning script.

There will be other prizes tbd.
