Introducing the Jury for the 2019 ScreenCraft Action & Adventure Screenplay Competition!

by ScreenCraft on August 2, 2019

Today ScreenCraft announces the jury for the 2019 ScreenCraft Action & Adventure Screenplay Competition. The action genre is the one genre that producers and literary managers have recently requested the most, and which we have the least. So this could be one of our most successful competitions!

Our jury is looking for emerging voices in the action movie genre.

Whether you have a big-budget, tentpole family adventure movie, or a taught, low-budget action film, we want to read your screenplay. Professional feedback from studio-trained readers is available on all entries. Winner will receive $1,000 cash prize and an introduction to Hollywood producers and executives, as well as a meeting or phone call with a literary manager or agent.

The 2019 Jury includes:

Jeannette Francis, Creative Executive at Bad Robot, the production company of JJ Abrams, the director behind such franchises as Star Trek, Star Wars, Cloverfield, and Super 8.

Jon Gonda, VP of Production at Paramount, the iconic studio behind such film franchises as Mission Impossible, Transformers, XXX, The Terminator, and Jack Reacher.

Francesca Muscamesci, Coordinator at XYZ Films, the international sales distribution and production company behind 2018’s modern classic, Mandy, starring Nicholas Cage.

Aimee Rivera, Creative Executive at Skydance Films, production company with first look deal at Paramount, behind such films as Geostorm, World War Z, Mission Impossible, and Top Gun.

Sandino Moya-Smith, Creative Executive at MGM Studios, the iconic film studio behind such film franchises as James Bond, Tomb Raider, G.I. Joe, Robocop, and Creed.


The early deadline is August 31st. The final deadline is October 31st.
