The Poe Film Festival is not currently accepting pitches or scripts other than through the contest format.

Who we are
Poe celebrates the passion of writers in all genres, from thriller scripts to love stories. Edgar Allan Poe was an expert in both. In deference to America’s greatest poet and author, their competitions are designed to recognize and reward talented twenty-first century voices and to assist creative storytellers in their quest to obtain representation and produce their work.

Our Vision
Poe Films strives for a world in which enlightenment, knowledge and tolerance prevail. We believe film as an art form has the power to bridge cultures and illuminate the universality of the human experience.

Poe Films enthusiastically pursues its artistic and public service goals; to enrich, to educate, to entertain, to initiate cultural dialogue and celebrate cinematic excellence in any language. Our principles objectives encompass promoting film to an ever-widening audience as a powerful medium that inspires creativity, encourages introspection and compels exploration.

Writing Contests
Our writing contests for top feature and short screenplays in the Edgar Allan Poe story structure style are now associated with the Poe Film Festival. We are seeking the finest suspense and mystery scripts, and dare you to stun with your voice and keep us on the edge of our seats as Poe thrilled readers in his time. We invite our writing finalists to join us for networking, panel discussions and film screenings at the Poe Film Festival.
