Why Script Summit is a can’t-miss event

Don’t just take our word for it, past participants in the Script Summit Screenplay competition have lots to say about why this is the event you want to attend as an aspiring screenwriter. 

Take Christopher O’Bryant’s feedback, “What a great festival! In addition to the event itself, they offer support, direct contact, and cool extras— But most of all this event supports the writing community from start to finish (and even beyond). Don’t miss out on your chance to be a part of this!”

Kristy Leigh Lussier was even more emphatic, “Every screenwriter looking to network, learn, and grow must attend Script Summit!!! I can’t even begin to describe how great the event was this year. The community of writers is fantastic, you really build good connections/relationships and you also learn a ton of new information with each day of participation. 

“Worth every penny and attendance is so crucial to get the full benefit. The Summit team works so hard and puts in hours of effort to bring together some great learning content, and they take the time to stop and talk to each/every writer there. There are screenwriting contests, and then there is Script Summit, which is above & beyond anything an aspiring screenwriter can get elsewhere. Submit for next year and go to the Summit. It will not disappoint!!” 

Jeff Naparstek also shared his feelings on Script Summit’s value, “Incorporated into the festival was a series of seminars covering topics like what to do after finishing your script, a logline lab, techniques to improve pitching, beefing up scenes to improve your script, selected scene table reads and analyses [from some of the entries], and even a seminar on writing for interactive games. It was one of the best festivals I’ve ever attended. All of the people associated with it were extremely knowledgeable and supportive of writers.”

Screenwriters know the value of constructive feedback and community think tanks, which are just some of what Script Summit’s offerings. To keep up with all of the Script Summit news, follow Script Summit on Facebook or Twitter.
