The BlueCat Tradition: Written Feedback For Every Screenplay
In the spirit of our commitment to the development of screenwriters worldwide, the BlueCat Screenplay Competition holds a longstanding tradition of giving written notes to every screenplay submitted.
Each Feature screenplay entered receives two analyses, while each Short screenplay receives one, with students receiving a special rate of $29 throughout the competition. All submissions will be eligible for Resubmission.
BlueCat prides itself in its leading reputation as a community for developing screenwriters, to support and develop the undiscovered, in all of us, today and days ahead.
Recent achievements by BlueCat Alumni include:
- Young Il Kim’s script, “Rodham”, a 2012 Blacklist Script, recently attached director James Ponsoldt (“The Spectacular Now”). Young recently won the 2013 Alfred P. Sloan Commissioning Grant from Sundance, where he will write a biopic on Stephen Hawking.
- Elijah Wood produced Ana Lily Amipour’s “A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night”, set for release in late 2013.
