Austin Film Festival Script Competitions

Austin Film Festival
January 29, 2020

Early Deadline: March 27
All submissions must be received or postmarked by 11:59PM PST on Friday, March 27
We can't wait to experience your stories! AFF’s Script Competition accepts feature screenplays, short screenplays, teleplay pilots & specs, scripted digital series scripts, and even stage plays and fiction podcasts. Regardless of if your script advances, AFF provides Reader Comments to ALL script competition entrants! March 27 is the Early Deadline for script submissions, so enter yours before the submission price goes up. Submit your stories here

Don't forget to check out the Fiction Podcast Script Competition. The Fiction Podcast Competition has an early deadline of April 17th so there is still time to adapt for this emerging medium at the lowest submission price! With the recent success of podcasts like HomecomingLimetown or Welcome to Night Vale, the world of fiction podcasts is gaining momentum.  If you have a pilot, a teleplay or a screenplay ask yourself: is this a great story?  If it is, you might consider taking the time to tweak it for this new medium!  Whether you submit with us or not, getting your script ready for this space can only enhance your portfolio of work.
