 Announcing: The Ten Show Season 3

Holiday Filmmaker Edition!

8/17/20 Update: Submissions for filmmakers, actors, and crew roles for The Ten  Show Season 3: Holiday Filmmaker Edition are now under way. See submission form below. This page/submission form is for filmmakers, actors, and crew members. For the submission form for writers, please visit this page.

Now Accepting Submissions of Interest from Filmmakers, Actors, and Crew

In light of these unusual times, we adapted our focus in Season 2 from Season 1’s stage play format to a filmmaker format (see the results here). We’re working toward launching Season 3 in November 2020 running through mid-December. (Yes, we know that is coming up crazy fast.) Dates to be determined soon. New for Season 3: filmmakers will have approximately 10 days (up from 6 days in Season 2) to go from script acquisition to premiere.

Season 3 will be a small-cast, holiday filmmaker edition of The Ten Show. Scripts are not limited to themes surrounding Christmas, although those are welcome. We’ve told writers that whatever the holidays mean to them, if they’ve got a great script about it, we invite them to send it our way. Films should be profanity-free and all ages appropriate. That doesn’t mean it needs to be geared toward a family audience; they can be adult-themed. We invite you to see our Season 2 films for reference.

In this version of The Ten Show, we’ll select a small pool of finalist scripts (about 20 scripts). Working with identical $500 budgets, ten filmmakers will bid to acquire their preferred scripts from that pool. Their budget also needs to cover their cast, crew and out of pocket costs for making the film. Want to throw your hat into the ring? (Do it, do it!) Complete the submission form below for those roles you’re interested in.
