The team at Long Distance Film Festival is thrilled to announce that FINAL DRAFT is joining us as a sponsor for this year’s edition of the festival.
Final Draft, A Cast & Crew Company, has published Final Draft® software – the number one screenwriting application in the world – for 30 years. Final Draft automatically paginates and formats your script to industry standards, allowing writers to focus on what they do best – writing scripts. Used by such industry giants as J.J. Abrams, James Cameron, and Aaron Sorkin, Final Draft software is the professional’s choice and the entertainment industry standard. In addition to its flagship software product, Final Draft offers the annual Big Break Contest, a screenwriting competition that launches careers and awards over $100,000 in cash and prizes. Final Draft also offers Final Draft Mobile for iPhone and iPad, making creativity truly portable.
Our three audience award winners will each receive a copy of their software, valued at $250 apiece. Remember: our viewers (that’s you!) will choose the audience awards winners through a form on our official website the weekend of the festival. We’re immensely grateful for Final Draft’s support, and encourage you to go to their website to learn more about their software.
As we start pushing through our submission deadlines, remember to sign up for our newsletter if you haven’t already and follow us on social media, through which we’ll be announcing more exciting news about sponsorships, jury members, alongside other updates for LDFF2021. And as always, we encourage you to submit your work!
