2018 International Screenplay Competition
2018 marks the fourth year for the VIWIFF International Screenplay Competition. The competition is committed to highlighting the best stories the world has to offer that are written by women.
This year we welcomed submissions from female screenwriters across Canada and the U.S.A., Japan, Australia, Brazil, United Arab Emirates, Tajikistan, Hong Kong, France, Austria and the U.K.
Special thanks to our volunteer readers, jurors and VIWIFF Screenplay Competition Coordinator, Joan Macbeth.
