TVOne knows that you never know where you are going to find the next big talent. Therefore, the network is once again teaming up with American Black Film Festival (ABFF) launch the careers of promising writers through the TVOne Screenplay Competition at ABFF. If you are a writer with a story in your soul, you still have time to submit your screenplay. The winner receives $5000, a trip to Miami for ABFF 2018 and the opportunity to have your script turned into a TVOne movie.
From the official rules:
The TVOne Screenplay Competition is meant to encourage and promote the production of creative, contemporary, engaging and relatable screenplays that can be turned into original movies for television. The competition is meant to:
- Encourage filmmakers to offer a fresh perspective and submit contemporary stories with a focus on the American Black cultural experience with wide audience appeal.
- Encourage filmmakers to creatively center around entertaining, heart-felt and relatable topics that resonate and appeal to African American audiences.
- Expand upon the genres/formats that tell these entertaining stories. Genres include, but are not limited to comedies, romantic comedies, dramas, and family adventures (submissions should be non-period stories).
