17th Ojai Film Festival

November 3-13, 2016

The film submission window for 2016 is closed.

This year we received 406 submitted entries.

The Ojai Film Festival is proud to announce the semifinalists in its inaugural Table Read Screenplay Competition.

From a wide and multi-national field — entries were received from Canada, Germany, Italy, and South Africa as well as all over the U. S. — the following screenplays were selected to emerge from this preliminary round. They include the work of Ojai writer Jon Christopher.

The next step will see five finalists chosen to go before our panel of judges. The winning screenplay will be presented as a table read at a special event during the Ojai Film Festival in November.
