JFL ComedyPRO has teamed up with production studio, American High, to search for the next timeless comedy film. Influenced by movies like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club, Jeremy Garelick (American High founder) bought a school in Syracuse, NY, with the goal to make more movies like the ones that inspired him as a teen.

With three accomplished producers, Michael Schade, Ryan Bennett, and Will Phelps, American High has already shot five indie comedies and recently optioned Ready, Set, Bad from The Comedy Pitch Showcase at JFLNW 2019 in Vancouver.


This is your chance. Submit your original screenplay idea (one-pager) with a concise but captivating logline, in any genre of comedy film – from rom-coms to dramedies. Think classic high school comedy with an edge. Submission details HERE!

Panelists:
Jeremy Garelick (Founder, Writer, Director, American High)
