COMPETE FOR THE $10,000 GRAND PRIZE!

Haydenfilms Institute (HFI) announces a CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS for the $10,000 Haydenfilms 1.0 Screenwriting Competition, featuring screenplay for FEATURES, PILOTS, and SHORT – open to all genres!
About the competition:
Since 2001, Haydenfilms holds the distinction of being host to one of the world’s first online film festivals. Every year, film entries were submitted through the festival’s website, where the Top 50 entries were selected, competed, and voted upon by a global audience, which resulted in one winner taking the grand prize of $10,000.
HFI looks to empower the world’s future screenwriters in presenting their craft as we had done in the past (and into the future) with global award-winning filmmakers through our Haydenfilms Online Film Festivals and our multiple film labs hosted over a 15-year period.
HFI wants all screenwriters to bring their potential in our first Screenwriting Competition, and to join the legacy of worldwide film professionals who have emerged from our organization. Not only will our winner receive a grand prize, but they’ll also have the potential to meet with producers and directors to make their vision come to fruition.

GRAND PRIZE: One Winner will receive a $10,000 Cash Prize and an industry development meeting in Los Angeles, California.
