About Us

Our Team. Our Mission.

The Collective Effort

The spirit of a film is in the hearts and minds of the screenwriter. All success on the screen begins and ends with the story. To that end, we strive to connect with the best emerging talents for the collective benefit of our growing film community in the state of Nevada. Be part of our rise!

About us

Our Mission

Founded by screenwriters, producers, directors, and other industry pros, the Reno-Tahoe Screenplay Contests knows just how difficult it can be to see a script go from an idea to the screen. 

Rather than just acknowledge a winning script, we look to grow careers and nurture the best writers and talent.

Each contest cycle, winner of the short script contest will get their script optioned and produced and the winning feature and TV pilot scripts will get a table read of their full script read by professional actors and directed by a director (winners will get a copy of the video and audio recording).

Whether you’re an old pro or a burgeoning writer, we encourage you to submit, get our professional feedback, and join our growing community of writers.

The prizes are non-exchangeable, non-transferable and is not redeemable for cash or other prizes.
