  • The Ozark Foothills FilmFest is accepting entries for its screenwriting competition.

Hey there, budding screenwriter who hasn't yet had a film produced, optioned or distributed by non-independent means.

Have you been waiting for a reason to finish that great script you've been working on? The one that is either 90-130 pages or 30 pages or fewer, that is based solely on your own work and isn't an adaptation, that was written in English and that doesn't contain any pornographic elements?

Well peep this: The annual Ozark Foothills FilmFest is now accepting entries in its screenwriting competition. So if you've got a script that fits the above criteria (more details here), as well as $20, you can toss your hat into place where everyone else is tossing their hats to see whose hat is best or whatever.

The winner for Best Feature Screenplay wins $600 and the winner for Best Short Screenplay pockets a cool $400. Entrants will be honored and the winners will be announced at a reception and awards ceremony during the 12th annual Ozark Foothills FilmFest, which is happening April 3-7 in Batesville.

Email your submission to bobpest@wildblue.net as a PDF, a Word or a WordPerfect file. No hard copy entries will be accepted. Mail your entry forms and fees should to: Screenplays, 195 Peel Road, Locust Grove, AR 72550. The deadline for entries is Dec. 1.

Of course, if you've already got a film made, or have it done before Dec. 14, you can enter that in the festival as well. Details here.

The full press release is included after the jump.
