Founded in 2017 Shepperton Screenwriting Festival aims to promote new and established writers from across the globe.

We accept scripts of any genre, any length and from any writer. All we ask is that they be written in English and submitted via Film Freeway.

The festival takes place in April and films are judged and critiqued by an elite panel of industry professionals.

The screenwriting festival takes place online so writers and filmmakers from across the globe are invited to take part.

If you are selected for the festival we will review and critique your script, offering helpful advise and tips on what to do to improve your work.

We are also offering a script reading by professional actors for any screenplay that wins one of the categories. Even if you can’t make it to the reading we’ll film it for you and send it over so you have something to take away and keep.
