Open Screenplay are very pleased to announce the winners of our Short Film Comedy Screenwriting Contest!
They say that laughter is the best medicine; and after what we have collectively gone through over the last 18 months, we could certainly use some! Beyond the sheer enjoyment of a good laugh, comedy illuminates humanity like no other genre can. It shows us our greatest flaws and vulnerabilities, and allows us to examine the absurdities of our world with levity.
This is your chance to show off your comedic chops in our Short Film Comedy Contest. Your comedy screenplay can be lighthearted or dark, cerebral or slapstick, romantic or shocking, so long as the jokes work and it earns the highly coveted sound of an audience laughing! Just be sure to follow the contest rules and guidelines and you can win one of the following cash prizes and a chance to have your screenplay produced. Happy writing!
Congratulations to all the Winners!
