Cinequest loves writers and is dedicated to launching screenwriters’ careers by providing a platform for their art to take flight. Welcome to the 16th Annual Cinequest Screenwriting Competition, presenting writers with exceptional networking opportunities, increased industry visibility, inspiration, and the chance to win extraordinary acclaim and prizes.
The Competition welcomes screenplays and teleplays of all genres and lengths and provides unique opportunities for writers to be discovered, have their work produced, and further inspire their creative fervor. As the world changes, it’s more important than ever to showcase the voices of extraordinary storytellers.
“I think the most important thing about Cinequest is it’s definitely the first time I’ve ever come to a festival where my immediate reaction is, ‘What do I have to do to be invited back?’ and that’s not normally my reaction. It’s a perfect film festival in a glorious place.” — Neil Gaiman
