Script 2 Screen

Script to Screen is a joint initiative presented by the Media Resource Centre and the Australian Writers’ Guild.

Designed as a professional development opportunity to support screenwriters during the writing process, Script to Screen offers the chance for the winning scripts to be directed, rehearsed and then read by actors in front of an audience in the Mercury Cinema.

S2S gives writers the opportunity to hear their long-form narrative television or feature film screenplays at mid-stage development read, to experience an audience response, and to receive relevant and meaningful feedback by way of a Q&A session which will follow the reading. Producers and industry professionals will be invited to attend, along with members of the public. S2S winners will be eligible for consideration for Pathways Showcase.

The aim of this initiative is to support the advancement of screenplays from development into production and thereby contribute to the growth and ongoing viability of SA screenwriters and production companies.

2018 S2S submissions have closed.


Actors interested in performing the selected scripts at the Mercury Cinema can express their interest here.


All S2S readings will be held at 7pm at the Mercury Cinema (13 Morphett Road, Adelaide). Finger food will be provided at the networking events after the readings.

Spring/Summer S2S dates have not yet been announced.
