  • Is entering a short screenplay competition worth it?

    I have quite a few comedy shorts. I'm considering entering the L.A. Comedy Shorts Film Festival contest, but it's $50. Is it worth the money to enter short screenplay competitions? What are the good short screenplay competitions?

    Any contest that offers a decent cash prize is worth considering. Short scripts don't do much for the writer, and short films only help the director. So, enter for the cash. It's really the only good thing most writers can get from a short. (other than building their storytelling confidence and using them as training exercises). Writing a great short is not even a stepping stone to features, usually, because the structure is so different.
