    Mission Statement/Statement of Purpose. The Orange County Screenwriters Association (OCSWA) and The Orange County Media Arts Organization (OCMAO) are not-for-profit organization conceived to be a connective resource of creative energy and real-world materials for professional and amateur writers and filmmakers.

    OCSWA and OCMAO are the creation of writers, educators, film professionals and mentors, based in the belief that the passion and dedication to write and produce film is prevalent in our community and should be encouraged so all can achieve artistic, professional and economic success. We are volunteer members who believe in the power of film and the art and craft of writing and producing it. We exist to inspire excellence, and to help empower those interested in film, television and theater. To further our goals, OSCWA and OCMAO will produce events that feature industry guest speakers, writing and film contests, discussion panels, seminars, and networking & educational opportunities. OSCWA and OCMAO, in partnership with other film and collegiate programs, proudly represents the best that the Orange County film community (and beyond) has to offer. As always, we welcome your help and support.

    Fair Use Statement

    Fair use refers to the right to reproduce, use and share copyrighted works of cultural production without direct permission from or payment to the original copyright holders. It is a designation that is assigned to projects that use copyrighted materials for purposes that include research, criticism, news reporting and teaching. When a project is protected under fair use provisions, the producers of that project are not subject to sanctions related to copyright infringement. The maintenance of fair use protections is central to many non-profit and education projects, especially those that operate in digital and online spaces.

    This website may contain copyrighted material, the use of which has not been specifically authorized by the copyright holders. The material is made available on this website as a way to advance research and teaching related to critical media literacy and intercultural understanding, among other salient political and social issues. Through context, critical questioning, and educational framing, the Orange County Screenwriters Association, therefore, creates a transformative use of copyrighted media. The material is presented for entirely non-profit educational purposes. There is no reason to believe that the featured media clips will in any way negatively affect the market value of the copyrighted works. For these reasons, we believe that the website is clearly covered under current fair use copyright laws. We do not support any actions in which the materials on this site are used for purposes that extend beyond fair use.
