GSFF Screenplay Competition | Garden State Film Festival

GSFF Screenplay Competition

The GSFF Screenplay Competition was instituted to recognize the importance of the writer as the foundation for a really great film. Coordinated by our friends at the New Jersey Screenwriter’s Network, our goal is to shine a spotlight on this year’s winning screenplay, host a live stage reading by professional actors, and create an atmosphere conducive to industry professionals and investors attending and supporting this great script.

AND THE WINNER IS……YOU CAN’T PLAY THE GAME IF YOU DON’T KNOW THE RULES
