The Showtime Tony Cox Feature Screenplay Competition
The Showtime Tony Cox Screenplay Competition recognizes an emerging feature screenplay as the best from the pool of submissions each year. The competition gives writers the opportunity to have their scripts read by a prestigious jury, receive top industry recognition, participate in a Festival focused specifically on screenwriting, including a Mentor’s Brunch with the recipient of the Festival's Screenwriters Tribute, and a $5,000 cash award.

Recent Mentors Brunch advisors include: Paul Haggis, writer/director (Crash, Million Dollar Baby, Quantum of Solace), Barry Levinson, writer/director/producer (Diner, Good Morning Vietnam, Rain Man) and Nancy Meyers, writer/director (It's Complicated, Something's Gotta Give).

SCRIPT ANALYSIS:
Dedicated to the belief that at the heart and soul of every great film is a talented writer with a great story, the Nantucket Film Festival is committed to helping screenwriters develop well crafted and high quality screenplays through a new Script Analysis service.
Contrary to internal “coverage” designed to save time for film executives, our script analysis is envisioned with the writer in mind. We offer you the opportunity to learn what does and doesn’t work before your screenplay reaches the executive’s desk. Our analysis is meant to be constructive and help you improve your script. Let our professional script consultants be the first in line to evaluate your script, not the last.

ANALYSIS INCLUDES:
* A well crafted log-line you will be able to use to describe your story;
* Genre suggestion;
* Scores on the critical elements of the script: story structure, plot development, character development, dialogue, marketability, and originality; (1 page)
* Critical evaluation on the elements of the script: story structure, plot development, character development, dialogue, marketability, and originality (2 pages).

MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The Nantucket Film Festival (NFF) was founded in 1996 to spotlight the screenwriters and screenwriting in today's cinema. From its conception, NFF has been dedicated to the notion that the screenwriter's contribution is at the core of filmmaking.


ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
For five days in June, screenwriting is celebrated with screenings of over 20 feature-length and short films and videos. The craft of screenwriting is explored through panel discussions, a screenplay competition and the Screenwriter's Tribute, which honors the career of a notable and distinguished screenwriter. The Morning Coffee With... series and the wildly popular Late Night Storytelling round out the line up.
