WriteMovies is a screenwriting website with a full-circle approach to making aspiring screenwriters, playwrights and other writers into winners, pitching them to industry and selling their scripts to producers who can get them produced!

Founded in 1999 by Alex Ross, WriteMovies simultaneously addresses the needs of writers in English, French and German. Apart from a popular writing competition and writing consultancy business, the site offers tips, articles, interviews, reviews, and more to help both beginners and more experienced writers in their chosen profession of screenwriting.

Amongst the writers discovered by Alex are Andrew Niccol, who wrote and produced THE TRUMAN SHOW (for which he received an Academy Award nomination), and Iris Yamashita, who also received an Academy Award nomination for her script LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA. We are proud of our writers and proud to have made, and continue to make, a difference.
