Testimonials

My experience from last yearís entry in American Gem, an off-shoot competition for shorts managed by FilmMakers, was handled very well. Secondly, based on personal feedback, Moviebytes lists FilmMakers as one of the best run and most influential. The other thing is the depth of prizes. Many contests only offer first, second and third, FilmMakers lists numerous as well as having the Top 20 and Top 10. This makes a difference when you approach someone with your script.

Marc Calderwood

 

FilmMakers has an excellent reputation in the contest circuit, and has lived up to it. FilmMakers also offers more than just cash prizes, though we love those, too. Getting our scripts into the hands of people who can make them into movies is the real prize.

Anita Skibski

 

A lot of the competitions out there are for cash prizes only. FilmMakers.com was one of the few that really encompasses everything a writer strives for. With FilmMakers, you enter into the competitive realm of Hollywood with the ability to get your script read by professionals in the industry, with the chance to obtain representation. Itís also one of the few forums that does not discriminate on geographical location. The contest is open to writers from around the world so you are literally competing against the best.

Jud Richards

 

This is one of the few verifiably good-intentioned, astute and rewarding competitions out here, where there is a genuine intention for the good and favor of the writer. Itís not about taking advantage.... There is a sincere commitment to see the committed writer succeed with the FilmMakers.com & the Radmin company screenwriting contest. And at best they want to be your benefactor. And at worst, the conduit to your inevitable success. What more can one ask? 

Damilola Olorunnisola

 

There arenít many contests run by people who actually know what it takes to write a script someone might want to produce. FilmMakers and The Radmin Company are both grounded in the realities of filmmaking. 

Lorelei Armstrong

 

It's always nice (and rare!) to get such positive feedback..... Just wanted to drop you a note of good news and thanks. After winning the filmmakers.com contest, I've had a lot of doors open to me that were previously unthinkable. More specifically, thanks in part to the contest win, combined with the interview on the filmmakers.com website I was able to pitch a romantic comedy idea to Harbor Light Entertainment -- and this month they optioned it. (Harbor Light currently has a deal at Paramount with Morgan Freeman attached). I'm not sure I would have been able to get the attention I got if not for your contest. So, thanks again for all your hard work!!! I really appreciate it.

Christian Parkes

 

Thank you and everyone else at Filmmakers.com for all you've done on my behalf so far. I am indeed truly grateful... I'm very pleasantly surprised by all the activity your contest has generated...  Almost immediately after THE SECRET BOY became a winner in your contest, it was optioned by KONK Productions and director Chris Koch (whose feature credits include "Snow Day" and "A Guy Thing")... I want to thank you once again for running such a terrific contest - it's really helped make a difference.

Whit Rummel

 

I entered the Filmmakers International Screenplay Contest because of the word "international." I felt an internationally oriented contest might be more open to my story, that is somewhat critical of American culture. It is the first (and only) contest I have entered.
 

Peter Alan Stelzer

 

I believe screenplay competitions are an invaluable resource for writers who can't get past the virtual blockade that surrounds Hollywood. Producers won't even read queries unless submitted by an agent and so few agents are willing to take on new clients that contests are a way of getting your work seen and possibly noticed by "the powers that be."
