Don't see your name? Not to worry! New winners are announced LIVE throughout the month of October every Friday at 12pm during our "That's a Movie" Logline Contest Webcast! 


Does this sound familiar? You spent months - perhaps even years - perfecting your screenplay or pilot and now, you’re ready to take that project out into the world. But then, someone asks you what it’s about, “a quick one-liner,” and you freeze! How do you boil down your entire narrative, your protagonist’s journey, the obstacles, and the stakes all into a single sentence?


Is Your Logline Sabotaging Your Chances of Getting Read?

Have it reviewed by an Industry Professional for FREE

(and potentially win some awesome prizes)!


It’s shocking but true: even if you write the most groundbreaking story in history, if you don’t have an effective logline, your story may never break out in this crowded market!

Why? Because industry professionals (producers, managers, agents, filmmakers, and executives alike) routinely hear hundreds of ideas and make quick decisions based on loglines. Through this single sentence, they can assess the uniqueness of the project, “see” your story’s structure, and both your “vision” and “voice” as a writer.
And after hearing your logline, if an industry professional says, “That’s a movie!”, it is perhaps the best compliment a writer can receive.

So, what do you think? Would your logline catch the eye and the imagination of industry pros?

In our neverending mission to support the growth, education, and access of screenwriters all over the world, Stage 32 is thrilled to announce our “That’s a Movie!” Logline Contest!

Throughout the month of September, you’re invited to submit your loglines for your original feature, TV pilot, or short film to our panel of industry judges comprising filmmakers, producers, managers, and executives.



This panel includes Filmmaker Doug Atchison (AKEELAH AND THE BEE, BRIAN BANKS), Producer Aimee Schoof (10 Sundance, 4 Tribeca and 3 SXSW premieres), Netflix Director Mike Disa (“PARADISE PD”), Producer Bradley Gallo (GREEN HORNET for Universal), Literary Manager & Producer Andrew Wilson (Emmy-nominated “SELFMADE”), Literary Manager Spencer Robinson and many more!

These pros will review each logline, offer their expert opinion and pitch their favorites LIVE every Friday throughout October & collectively decide whether or not “That’s a Movie!” (or a series, or a short). Writers can join the LIVE webcasts every Friday in October to find out if their logline was selected! 

The writers of the winning loglines will receive exciting prizes including FREE PITCH SESSIONS, FREE 30-min & 60-min CONSULTATION CALLS, FREE PREMIUM & STUDIO COVERAGE, FREE MENTORING SESSIONS, FREE NEXT LEVEL WEBINARS and more from Stage 32! There are over $10,000 in prizes at stake!

That’s right! This contest is FREE to enter and you are able to make as many entries as you like! ENTER HERE NOW! But hurry! Submissions close on September 30th at Midnight!
