Feature Screenplay Competition

The Feature Screenplay Competition of the BlueCat Screenplay Competition aims to find the best undiscovered screenplay writing talent out there. We provide each writer who enters BlueCat one written analysis with the constructive feedback.

Many of BlueCat’s Winners and Finalists have industry success stories. Our Winners and Finalists have been signed by major talent agencies like UTA, CAA and WME, sold their work to studios like Warner Bros., Paramount and Universal, and won major awards at the Sundance, Berlin and Tribeca Film Festivals, all after being discovered by or winning BlueCat.
