2023 Austin Film and Script Competitions

Austin Film Festival’s Script Competition is open for entries! We think our competition would be a great way for your group members to give their work some exposure, and of course, compete for a chance to place, which can open doors that otherwise might take years to walk through. 

But, regardless of placement, all entrants receive free reader comments so, at the very least, they’ll get feedback on their script from seasoned readers.

We would love if you could pass this message along to your group members. Our submission deadlines are:

  • Early Deadline: March 23, 2023
  • Regular Deadline: April 18, 2023
  • Late Deadline: May 25, 2023

Additionally, we would like to offer your group the following discount code! AFFWG23

In addition to feature screenplays and teleplay pilots and specs, we also accept short screenplays, digital series scripts, stage plays, and fiction podcast scripts. More information on all script competitions can be found here:

Thank you for your consideration and if you have any questions, please let me know!

Kind regards,
