2019 DC Shorts Screenplay Competition

By DC Shorts (other events)

Friday, September 27 2019 7:00 PM 9:00 PM

The DC Shorts Screenplay Competition is a very different kind of screenwriting competition. A panel of judges consisting of filmmakers, screenwriters and critics reviewed over 80 screenplays  and selected the top 6 to be performed for you! After a table reading, the audience will vote for their favorite, and one lucky writer will walk away with $2,000 in cash and prizes to help shoot their project! The completed film may screen at DC Shorts 2020.


20 minutes before each showcase, All Access VIP pass holders and filmmakers are admitted to the theater.

15 minutes before each showcase, all ticket holders are admitted to the theater.

10 minutes before each showcase, all unclaimed seats are sold at the theater door. The standby line will form 45 minutes before the screening time. What are your chances of getting in? Pretty good — we usually release a minimum of 20-40 tickets at the door.

All Sales Are Final.
