I'm really excited to see a DVXFest focused on storytelling.
For those who don't know, MoviePoet.com is a free screenwriting site with over 1,500 five page scripts in our database.
In the past, dozens of DVXuser films have been created from MoviePoet scripts including winners like "The Small Multiple", "Teacher's Pet", and "Placebo". Many of our most talented writers are already DVXuser members (like Chris Keaton).
I realize 1,500+ scripts can be a little overwhelming to read through, but we have a great search page here: http://www.moviepoet.com/search.aspx
You can find scripts by genre, cast size, keyword, etc.
Here are three great stories to check out and get you started (we have many more):
"Flower Girls" by Don Riemer
An old, dying man recalls a moment of great joy, and finds a way to pass it on to a new friend.
"Vows" by Erich VonHeeder
A battered woman makes one last visit to her imprisoned husband.
"Dying, He Lies" by Paul De Vrijer
After he's unsuccessfully killed, a man has to pretend he's dead, trying to figure out the how and why, while the stranger is still around.
You will need to register (it's quick, easy, and free) to read the scripts. If you find one you like, please contact the author directly to arrange for the rights.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
