For the 2021 Flint Youth Film Festival, we'll be introducing a screenwriting competition. Like the main Festival, this is for anyone ages 13-25 to enter, especially those who may not have been able to go out and film something during the past year.

Each age group has a maximum number of pages, not counting a cover page, their entry can be.

Age 13-15: 5 pages max
Age 16-19: 10 pages max
Age 20-25: 20 pages max

There's no limitation to what your script can be about, but remember that our audience is all ages. So keep that in mind while writing and editing your script.

Scripts will be judged just like the film entries and are eligible for prizes, including a reading of their script by a team of actors.

It's our hope that by doing this we can help facilitate young filmmakers to expand their creativity and potentially network with others to open new avenues of collaboration.

Stay tuned for more details as we reveal them.
