Welcome to the Fast Lane Log Line Competition!

Do you have a movie concept that's worthy of bringing to life? or a killer log line? The ability to create a screenplay based on a given idea is a top way to break into the film industry. Enter now for a chance to have your idea turned into a treatment or even developed into a spec script.  

We have aligned ourselves with top Industry Insiders to view the top log lines. This gives the opportunity to possibly gain the exposure needed for your big break into the film industry. Our community of experts are ready to not only provide rare opportunities but, to also ensure your successful longevity in the industry.


10 finalists will be chosen, and each will receive extended development notes, treatment, and a script development deal. Finalists have six weeks to complete the final draft of their scripts for final judging.

Our team of Industry professionals evaluates the completed screenplays and decides the best screenplay. The Grand Prize Winner receives a Fast Lane Platinum Pass. This grants you access to our pool of network executives, producers and aggregators. Not only will you meet via Zoom with an industry executive and get extensive feedback on your screenplay, they provide advice vital to your film career.
