Attention Conservative Screenwriters!

Hmm, I wonder if my old Project Greenlight entry would fit the bill?


The American Film Renaissance is looking for the next John Milius, Lionel Chetwynd or Roger L. Simon. (And by the way, all three of those Oscar-nominated screenwriters are on our judges' panel).

We believe that Hollywood has lost touch with mainstream America. The result is the first summer in several years in which the movie box office take has actually declined.

The AFR is sponsoring a screenwriting contest to discover scripts that won't appeal only to cynical cultural elites. We're looking for stories that promote such positive timeless themes as freedom, family, faith, and love of country.

So if like us you're tired of movies that wallow in victimhood and self-pity, or that portray America, business and religion as the roots of all evil -- then this contest is for you.

First prize is a measly $2,000, so I guess the myth of the Evil RICH Conservative has been disproven some more.

Did you quit the velvet rope? They seem to be celebrating that there is nobody there to challenge them anymore
