Submit your Screenplay
We are looking for short screenplays to film...
Here are some suggested parameters to consider for screenplay submissions:
  • Keep the script from 5 to 10 minutes in length – 15 minutes MAX
    (Time estimate: 1 minute per page).
  • The location must be convenient, eg, an accessible NYC location. Some examples: someone's apartment (bedroom, living room, etc), a park in Queens (daylight, no rain), other location you have access to (an office space, etc), script should use at least 2 locations.
  • A small number of actors, anywhere from 1 to 4 would be good.
  • Please no fancy or expensive costumes, sets or props (ie, not a period piece).
  • You will get screen credit (no money).
  • A complete story, not just part of one.
  • No music unless you can get permission to use it.
  • Submissions should be in Screenplay format (visual as opposed to only dialog).
  • Preference given to screenplays with LGBT subject matter.

You can either:
  • Come to a meeting and tell us about it.
  • email it to us (see the "Contact Us" tab above).

We accept:
  • Files: TXT, DOC, RTF, PDF.

The Club meets at the LGBT Center at 208 West 13th St. (between 7th and 8th) on the third Tuesday of every month at 6:00 pm. Cost: $5 to help with room rental.

LAST CALL (15 minutes)

Paul M. Kelly and Paul Brenner expose the substance beneath the veneer in a fast-paced coffee shop get-together that examines the ambitions, obsessions, and excesses of two gay men. Commitments are realized as friendship is presented as a source of comfort and frustration.
