My thanks for creating the Capital Fund Screenplay Competition and giving us writers a way to get our work directly into the hands of those who love movies and also have the means to fund them. I feel this is one of the best run and most significant of any of the newer screenwriting competitions that have come along in recent years. Lee Tidball

The Capital Fund Screenplay Competition, now in its fourth year, where your scripts are read direct by investors that buy projects and fund films at the studio level domestically and abroad.


*Ranked in the Top 20 screenplay contests next to Page International, Script Pipeline, Scriptapalooza, and Francis Ford Coppola's Zoetrope Studios, we are proud to be bringing this one of a kind opportunity to writers found 

in no other competition. We think of it less of a screenplay contest and instead as a direct look at your 

material by active finance groups you simply cannot reach on your own.


The Capital Fund Screenplay Competition does offer money, prestige, and the possibility of industry

exposure. But the object is to get your movie made and make investors happy.


Competition will guarantee the option of the three Gold-Circle-winning scripts.


Bypass the networking, the query letters, the wondering whether your script is getting read or just sitting at the bottom of a pile. With Capital Fund Screenplay Competition you can go straight to an option (and prize money), sponsored by investors who are actively looking for scripts to green-light.



-Thank you to those that stopped by and said hello in Cannes and Berlin, we will follow-up with each one.

Capital Fund Screenwriting Competition provides tremendous opportunities for developing screenwriters and their fulfillment as professionals.  By placing our work in the hands of investors and financiers around the world, CFSC leaps over the usual barriers to script marketing and sends promising scripts directly to the decision makers.  What a concept! 


It is such an honor to win the professional table read award in the 2016 CFSC competition.  The event and the venue were wonderful.  Casting the key speaking roles was superb--my guests and I loved the actors and their performance of my screenplay.  Steve and Mike and other CFSC staff were helpful and encouraging, and they all made the table read a memorable event for everyone.   Thank you, CFSC staff and sponsors, for this great opportunity!
