Consistently considered by MovieMaker Magazine as one of the “50 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee,” AFF allows participating writers and filmmakers to measure themselves against the very best, while also providing valuable networking and learning opportunities.

This new award will be available in conjunction with our existing Script Competitions (for an additional $20 entry fee) and is open to original scripts in the following categories: features, TV pilots, digital series, and fiction podcast. The fellowship will be awarded to the project that best fits Rooster Teeth’s voice by incorporating elements of comedy and genre filmmaking and accomplishing a low budget/high concept feel. The winner of the Rooster Teeth Fellowship Award will receive a $5,000 prize along with a one-on-one mentorship with Rooster Teeth. In addition to the Fellowship Award, Rooster Teeth will offer development deals to three (3) finalists, who will be given the chance to develop an original concept in conjunction with the Rooster Teeth team.
