What we're about

Screenwriters, thank you for your support for the #filminDallas mission. Because of logistical changes, we will not be able to host screenwriting table reads for the foreseeable future. We hope that you stay in touch, and we will announce once we are able to resume the meetings.  Thank you again for your support.

Flash Film Kickoff! Make a film in 8 weeks!

Dallas Makerspace

Flash Films are our way of getting filmmakers together and cutting to the chase, filming!

Filmmakers are put into teams, and have 8 weeks to complete their film.
Join us April 16th to read prewritten scripts of 3 pages, submitted by April 12th. The top seven scripts will be considered.

We believe the best way to learn is to do, and this is our way of pushing for that belief. We provide guidance and support to flash film teams, but ultimately let the filmmakers learn and grow through personal experiences.

We will then vote on which screenplay(s) we will make into a film!


Send a short, 3 page screenplay that can be filmed within 8 weeks. Want a tip? Keep it simple!

Send your PROPERLY FORMATTED screenplay to [masked]
Don't worry about being by yourself, we will help place you in a team. We make the teams at the actual kickoff event.

If you already have some friends, bring them along and perhaps recruit other team members.

No Experience? No Problem!

This is also a great opportunity for filmmakers who want to try out a new position or make their very first film. We will guide each team towards completion to insure you have a complete film ready to screen.

Our kickoff location will be at the Dallas Makerspace, 825 Monetary Ln #104, Carrollton, TX 75006

Meet new filmmakers!

We'll be meeting up after the meeting at Twisted Root (1111 S Main St, Carrollton, TX 75006) for a happy hour with all attendees.
