HOW TO FORMAT INTERCUTS IN A SCREENPLAY

Intercuts (just like in scene heading. Used instead of repeating scene headings, or cutting back and forth between two scenes. Often used during a phone call session)

INT. MATILDA’S HOUSE – BEDROOM – NIGHT

The phone rings again and Matilda hops out of the bed quickly, looking very curious to answer.
She picks it up and answers.

MATILDA
Hello.
Mama!

INT. GARCIA’S HOUSE – BEDROOM – NIGHT

Mrs. Garcia is holding unto the phone firmly, looking very anxious.

MRS GARCIA
Matilda

INTERCUT BETWEEN MRS GARCIA AND MATILDA

MATILDA
Yes Mama

MRS GARCIA
I want to speak with Lugard.
Is he sleeping?

Matilda looks puzzled.

MRS GARCIA
I had a bad dream a moment ago
