Reading and Deliberating


Best short film competition - EVER!!

The Filmmaker Problem: Funding.
The Screenwriter Problem: Finding Production.

Solution: WritersandFilmmakers.com

The winning filmmaker wins up to $25,000 to shoot one of the top 10 scripts. Winning writer receives up to $10,000 for their short script!

Writers judge filmmakers and filmmakers judge writers. It’s that simple! We fund you to collaborate.

Writers can't judge writers. Filmmakers can't judge filmmakers. Approximately 500 writers and 500 filmmakers can enter. Imagine competing with only 500 people! TIFF and Sundance had over 15,000 submissions last year. 500+ have entered of 1000 spots thus far.

The filmmaker owns 100% of the film. Writersandfilmmakers.com owns 0%.

How it works: The writers review films and decide the best filmmaker. The filmmakers read scripts and decide the top 10 scripts. The winning filmmaker selects one of the top 10 scripts to shoot and we fund the production. The screenwriter gets paid and their script made. The filmmaker gets funded to shoot the script.

Visit www.writersandfilmmakers.com to enter your work now. Pay only when the competition starts (That way we are not holding your money).

We don’t have a fixed deadline - when we hit 1000 entries we will begin shortly after. Show your commitment! Over 500 people have already. We are getting closer everyday!

Why do we say “up to”? Because you only pay when the competition starts, we recognize that some people will sign up but not commit. So we have to go on without them!


$10,000, up to $25,000 for the production
