“Just write every day of your life. Read intensely. Then see what happens. Most of my friends who are put on that diet have very pleasant careers."

- Ray Bradbury

Now Is Your Time To Shine

The foundation of cinema and television is now and always will be the written screenplay. The Cannes Screenplay Contest presents a top-level screenwriting competition for aspiring newcomers and seasoned veterans alike seeking to be read, recognized and rewarded for their storytelling talent. This dedicated scriptwriting contest is a rare opportunity for screenwriters to submit their work to be read, judged, and critiqued solely on their ability to captivate and entertain through the written word.

The Cannes Screenplay Contest seeks to be included with the industry's most prestigious and relevant script contests contending today. For those with the discipline and talent to create a quality story for film or television, there is no greater opportunity to dip your toe into the fire and see if you’ve got what it takes to entertain audiences for a living.

The Cannes Screenplay Contest proudly accepts entries via FilmFreeway.com, the world's best online submissions platform.
