The Launch Pad Competition, in exclusive partnership with Verve, Good Fear Film + Management, and Romark Entertainment, is thrilled to announce the Top 25 finalists for the 2018/2019 Launch Pad Feature Competition.
These 25 features capture what it’s like to be a misfit looking for a home, the struggles of an amputee fighting for their country, the wonders of the first kiss, and the impact of saying that final goodbye. Whether it’s trapped thousands of feet in the air or held up with on the coldest night of the winter, our writers take you on adventures from the land of the giants to the deserts of Nevada, the projects of Chicago to the picket lines of a union strike. These scripts tell the harrowing true stories from a lawyer fighting for a couple’s right for adoption to a woman hell-bent to fight Nazis with her homemade tank. There is something for everyone in this collection of stunning work from a talented group of emerging writers.
ADD-ON PRIZES (SIGNING, OPTION, MENTORSHIP PROGRAM):
For those of you who added the Signing, Option and Mentorship prizes to your submission, this is a reminder that those prizes are selected independently of the overall competition, so even if you were not selected as part of the Top 25 you are still very much in the running for all of those prizes. In keeping with previous competitions, those winners will be announced alongside the overall winners.
As a reminder, all feedback notes are sent out in tandem with the top 10 announcement!
And now, without further ado, let us introduce you to the Top 25 finalists of the 2018 Launch Pad Feature Competition!
