Cavalier Films is seeking smart, original screenplays, which can be
produced for under $1M. CF is not exclusive to any genre (for who can
predict the home of greatness?) but dramas with a comedic element are
well received. Our main focus is making quality, commercially viable
films with at least one known actor or actress on a limited budget. In
order to accomplish this feat submitted scripts should be
character-driven with roles that will attract recognizable talent.
Stories should have a clear and meaningful arc and leave the
audience somehow better for watching the film. Unfortunately CF does
not have the time or resources to develop stories thus we can only
accept submissions of completed screenplays.
Material Submission Procedures and Policy
Although it is often the policy of the film production industry to
only accept materials for consideration from known agencies, CF
holds the belief that fresh and interesting materials are likely
to exist outside of such relationships and that writers without
representation deserve an opportunity to have their creations
considered. As such CF will welcome direct submissions but only
upon receipt of a properly executed and submitted Script
Submission Statement of Understanding and Release (SSUR) form.
The release form must be submitted to Cavalier Films in an envelope
separate from materials submitted for evaluation. Materials to be
reviewed and the SSUR can be separately mailed or the SSUR can be
contained in a separate envelope affixed to the outside of a larger
envelope containing the submitted materials. If mailed separately,
return addresses should match and title or other identifying
information of the materials must be present on the outside of the
envelope containing the materials to allow for proper pairing.
Materials submitted without a release form in hand at the time of
their arrival may be destroyed unopened.
