MISSION & OBJECTIVE

The Nashville Film Festival (NashFilm) Screenwriting Competition is an international competition. It welcomes screenwriters from around the world to compete in all categories, except the Tennessee Screenwriter Category which is reserved for in-state writers. The awards presentation will be held at the 50th Nashville Film Festival, October 3 - 12, 2019.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

Founded in 1969 as the Sinking Creek Film Festival, the Nashville Film Festival (NashFilm) is one of the longest-running film festivals in the country and one of the most acclaimed festivals in the South. For years, film-goers and filmmakers alike have come to experience the big city festival atmosphere and the laid-back Southern hospitality here in Music City. In the last few years, NashFilm has expanded to include several new competitions, including an Episodic Competition, Song Competition, and the reason you are here…. The Screenwriting Competition!

The Screenwriting Competition is entering its 6th year and has been met with great enthusiasm by our festival-goers and emerging screenwriters. Last year, we received over 1400 entries and awarded nearly $50,000 worth of cash and and in-kind prizes, and got to know some amazing screenwriters from all over the world. We’re positive that with your help, the 2019 Screenwriting Competition will be our best one yet!
