Read the 55 Winning Scripts for The Impact50

Feedback from Screenplay Judges

‘He Who Is Without Sin had a great twist as well as a mini-redemption arc, masterfully-fit into such a short amount of screen time.’
Nicole Perlman, Impact 50 judge and
Screenwriter ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

‘I admired all fifty five of the winning screenplays enormously and it is practically impossible to pick one favourite.’
Ted Tally, Impact50 screenplay judge and
Oscar Winner for ‘Silence Of The Lambs’

'My favourite was actually perhaps the simplest one: MORE. i like the simplicity and clean emotionality of the storytelling, and how we all turn to children in moments of fear. it felt real and honest and like it packed a lot of emotion into so little time.’
Simon Kinberg, Impact50 Judge and Screenwriter / Producer ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’
