In an informal face-to-face meeting--just like you'd have with a working producer at a major studio--Bob & Suzanne will share specific tips and insights for winning the big screenplay contests, including:
​• Why enter a contest? (Are they really worth it?)

• What you must do to win.
• What you must not do.
• Formatting tricks for winning.
​• Which screenplay elements really matter.
​• How to quickly get noticed by readers and judges.

By the end of the meeting, you'll know exactly how to move from the ranks of "contestant" to prize-winning competition WINNER.

Be sure to bring your questions for the live Q&A session following the discussion!

A worldwide “Call for Entries” has been issued to independent filmmakers by the Garden State Film Festival (GSFF). More than twenty categories are now open for submissions. GSFF has been showcased in major international media outlets such as Variety, Vogue Global Network/Condé Nast, Deadline, IndieWire, ET Canada, News Entertainment and others. Submission information can be found on the festival’s website at The deadline for submissions is November 1, 2022.

GSFF presents all categories of film, screenplay competition and was the first festival to introduce the movie music competition to an audience of film executives and buyers, journalists, film fans and filmmakers. Along with screenings, there are seminars, workshops, and parties to allow everyone the chance to share their passion for film.

The 21st Annual Garden State Film Festival (GSFF), is a globally recognized event that celebrates extraordinary talents. GSFF offers competitive categories embracing documentary, animated, narrative, web series/ new media, short films, as well as music videos, commercials, trailers, movie music competition, and student projects in all categories. Fans of the festival are thrilled about the GSFF screenplay competition as well as the movie music competition. The multi-day event is truly a filmmaker's film festival with unrestricted access to industry pros and a diverse audience.

In 2022 the festival featured 173 films from seventeen countries, panel discussions, free virtual field trip sponsored by New Jersey Natural Gas for school students and opening and closing ceremonies.

Presented in the legendary Asbury Park, as well as Cranford, NJ, GSFF showcases more than 200 films from around the world, panel discussions, and has opening and closing ceremonies with multiple appearances by celebrities and honorees. Since its inception, industry notables such as Glenn Close, Laura Dern, Matthew Modine, Christopher Lloyd, Bruce Springsteen, and many, many more, have lent their support.

GSFF offers practical and career-enhancing panels on subjects such as film financing and independent film distribution. Each panel is led by industry experts with track records of success and limitless knowledge to share. GSFF's competitive categories for industry veterans as well as students ensure that anyone with talent and drive can find a place at this festival. Our partner, A Shared Universe Podcast Studio, conducts pre-event interviews and LIVE interviews on site with selected accepted filmmakers!

GSFF continues to engage the community by curating a selection of films that are suitable for all ages and seek a wide variety of films to screen to their multi-generational audience. On the forefront of the accessibility conversation GSFF asks all filmmakers to consider subtitling their films, even those in English, to accommodate our hearing-impaired friends. In 2022 debuted “Cinema for the Ears” for our vision impaired friends.

A panel of professional judges selected winning entries in a number of categories including the best Feature Length, Short, Documentary (short and feature length), Animation (short and feature length), Music Video, PSA, New Media, Pilots, Webisode, Commercial and Trailers.

The Garden State Film Festival was the first festival to create a category to recognize the musical compositions and the role music plays in the cinematic arts. To date, it remains the only independent film festival to recognize composers, artists and producers of scores, soundtracks and theme songs judged solely on their own merit. Composers may submit their works, regardless of whether the film has been submitted or accepted.
The GSFF invites all music makers who have written and produced tracks for independent films to be recognized for the part they play in the production of fine films. Filmmakers are invited to submit a track of any movie music from an independent film in any category that will be judged by music industry professionals in the GSFF Movie Music Track Competition. The winners of all competitions will be recognized at The GSFF Black Tie Awards Dinner held on March 26, 2023, at the English Manor. Information about the Movie Music Track Competition is also on the web site at
The Rising Star Award is open to all up and coming actors, regardless of age or union affiliation. Applicants should upload a reel, resume, and any other supporting information they would like the panel to consider.

SCREEN ATX was born out of dedication to the film and television industry and an affinity for the craft. Based in Austin TX, a growing hub for the big and small screen, our mission is is to support, showcase, and celebrate the work of emerging and established filmmakers.

SCREEN ATX judges watch every submission and rate solely on talent and quality of work. We know the dedication and passion that goes into your films and award those deserving of recognition, not because of who they are or who they may know!
