Companies Accepting Unsolicited Scripts in 2021

We do not accept unsolicited scripts. If you’re a new writer looking for a producer, you must be familiar with these six magic words you can find on most company’s websites, a warning that almost calls to mind the inscription at the entrance to Dante’s Hell: Abandon hope all ye who enter here. If they write it, they mean it. Please, don’t bother sending your script.

So, are there any companies out there accepting unsolicited submissions? Yes. When you work in this industry for some time, you realise that a huge deal of the screenwriter’s job is researching and networking. It takes tons of patience, but you’ll eventually find a company up your street. Luckily, we’re here to help out emerging screenwriters like you!

Here you find a list of production companies accepting unsolicited submissions in 2021. Before getting in touch, remember to check their guidelines and the kind of projects they develop. Don’t flood their inboxes with multiple projects but submit a complete and polished document, and be respectful of their time and patience. Common sense suggests you shouldn’t send a rom-com to a company specialised in indie horror or a blockbuster to a short film company, and so on. Stay in touch because we might update the list and good luck to you all!

And don’t forget, we accept unsolicited submissions too!
