Major Change is coming soon to Filmmakers Global Creative Contests Database

Filmmakers Global Creative Contests

Beverly Hills, CA -- Filmmakers.com is pleased to announce January as the official Beta launch for the Filmmakers Global Creative Contests Directory. This launch has been a long time coming.

Thank you and come back soon.

Contest Coordinators and Screenwriters:  Please excuse us.  We don't have the resources nor the manpower to manually keep updating the current database... Once launched, it'll enable contest coordinators to manage own contest, news and events in real time, have a blog (text, audio and/or video) and much more.  Artists will be able to submit news for consideration, manage own profile, have own blog (text, audio and/or video), manage auto reminders, search contests, jobs, internship, material wanted posts, and much more. 

If you are a contest coordinator or director and you would like to add your name to the list of executive testers please send us an email to: info at filmmakers.com. Any contest representative that takes part in this process will have their competition featured on the contest home page for a period of six months at absolutely no charge.

Thank you and come back soon!
