Qualifying Scripts

  • Scripts must be feature length (generally between 80 and 130 pages), in standard "spec script" format, be submitted as a typewritten PDF, and use clear and cogent english.  We suggest The Screenwriter's Bible, by David Trottier, as an excellent, affordable reference on spec script writing and formatting (we won't measure column widths, it just needs to follow the basic formatting guidelines). 

  • ​You must be at least 18 years old, and own or otherwise have the right to use any/all material in any script you submit.

  • Your script may not contain hate speech or otherwise offensive material that appears to be merely for the purpose of supporting such underlying viewpoints (Dark Matter reserves the right to make such a determination in its sole discretion).

  • You must reasonably believe your script would obtain a content rating from G to R (Nothing that would likely be rated NC-17 or higher will be accepted).

  • You must be a member of Dark Matter's website.


  • The entry fee is $100.  Submit your script here.
