Mission / description OUR MISSION

CREATE ORIGINAL & BOLD MOVIES IN MAINE

The Maine Film Initiative exists to generate and reward bold original screen-writing; to highlight Maine as a low budget film-making destination; and to support Maine film artists by investing directly in paying productions.

OUR BIG IDEA

A SCREENWRITING CONTEST THAT WILL MAKE YOUR FILM

YOU GIVE US STORIES...

Maine has beautiful locations, a talented and professional crew, and a mystique that brings millions of tourists to our fair home every year. Our film production community is growing quickly, and we need films to make. That's where you come in!

We want your screenplays and pilots. We want films that we can make here in our wonderful state, bold and original stories that will take advantage of everything Maine has to offer as a film-making destination. Give us something interesting we can make here, and we will make it.

...WE MAKE YOUR MOVIE

Here's where it gets interesting! One of the winning scripts will be selected for production. This production will be funded by the application fees from the contest. Our goal and our hope is that there will be enough money over and above the cash awards, paying readers, and small amount of overhead, to finance a Maine film production, using the talented cast and crew available to us right here in the Pine Tree State.

MFI will collaborate directly with the winning writer, inviting them to participate in every step of the process. It might be a five hundred dollar short. It might be two hundred thousand dollar feature. The scope of the production depends on the number of entries we receive.

Our goal with MFI is to reward daring screenwriters and support local film artists. We want to encourage making movies in Maine by making a movie in Maine…maybe your movie!
