The Edinburgh Short Film Festival is delighted to announce a new competition we’re holding aimed at young, Scottish-based screenwriters which we’re hoping will give our talented film creatives a leg up into the industry!

We’re working with the Matthew Martino Benevolent Fund and Screen Academy Scotland as well as the Scottish Screenwriters group, to hold a Script Pitch Challenge for Scottish-based screenwriters.

The winner & runner-up will each receive 1 ticket to the 2018 London Screenwriting Festival including flights to London as well as industry mentoring!

Eligibility: All screenwriters based in Scotland, aged 18-30 at the time of submission, are eligible for entry.
