The Fortnite site has been updated with a new contest, this time aimed at budding filmmakers. Using #FortntieBlockbuster, the contest asks fans to "write and direct the ultimate Season 4 superhero flick". Players are tasked with using the Fortnite replay system "and a little in-game movie set magic to make a blockbuster hit highlighting the heroes of Season 4 and their adventures".

The contest is already underway with submissions being accepted through July 11th. Movies will need to feature personal gameplay, be 1-5 minutes in length and use "royalty free audio". The title should include the #FortniteBlockbuster hashtag and be uploaded to YouTube.

The grand prize winner will have a chance to be featured in-game "on the Risky Reels screen" for everyone to see. In addition, the chosen video will also see a "poster for your film in the Fortnite world". All winners will take home some V-Bucks for the effort.


  • Film played in-game at Risky Reels
  • Title of film displayed on the marquee
  • A poster for their film shown in game
  • 25,000 V-Bucks


  • 10,000 V-Bucks
