Screenplay Submissions

Seeking Screenplays for Future Film Club Productions

Constellation Stage & Screen invites YOU to submit a short screenplay for the chance to have your script produced by Constellation’s Film Club! Our members will be working to create original short films throughout the year, so we need some killer content for them to work with! Submissions are open to all ages, experiences, and backgrounds.

Submissions requirements:

  • 10-12 pages long
  • Formatted appropriately (Celtx & WriterDuet are free to use)
  • Be capable of filming in Bloomington, IN
  • Be practical (no visual effects, stunts, etc.)
  • Not include nudity or otherwise explicit material
  • Not display extreme violence
  • Require no more than five actors to play all roles
  • The selected screenwriter will be welcome to attend the first class of the spring session (date TBD) either in person or via Zoom to share their vision and inspiration with the class.


Tips from Constellation:

  • BE PRACTICAL: Use locations that are easily accessible and easy to secure. Keep the number of different locations low – the more time we spend moving around, the less time we spend filming.
  • AVOID THE UNPREDICTABLE: Elements like rain, fire, animals, young kids, etc. are hard to control or can be dangerous
  • THINK BUDGET: Due to this being an educational experience, it will be a no/low-budget production
