The Screenplay Competition is the most important competition to the founder of the South Shore Film Festival, Candice Cain. As a published playwright and produced screenwriter, Cain makes sure that all of the entered screenplays receive written feedback and their scorecards. Furthermore, Cain considers all of the entrants for a potential production by Gemelli Films. That's right-- all of the entered screenplays have the chance to be optioned!
