Top Ranked Festivals

Top Ranked Festivals

The list below is not intended to be an all inclusive list of the world’s top screenwriting competitions as we are certain there are several competitions out there that might be just as prestigious, if not more prestigious, than the festival listed below. This list is merely intended to recognize what we consider to be many of the top screenwriting competitions out there. Last time we checked there were over 6,000 film festivals in the world. Most are a lot of fun, some are beneficial, but very few are respected. In fact, some are quite shady, some are scandalous, and many are a total waste of time. The same can be said of screenwriting competitions. We compiled this list, simply, to help screenwriters choose the best place to celebrate their work.

Competitions are listed in no specific order and are simply grouped by genre.

Indie Competitions, Hip Festivals, and Industry Respected Competitions
