The Vancouver International Women in Film Festival Screenplay Competition accepts English-language feature screenplays written by women. The festival is a forum for collaboration and networking with other screenwriters and filmmakers who contribute to the visibility of women through the ongoing practice of their craft.
“Women” includes all those who identify as women.
We encourage you to submit a feature film script of any genre, challenging the perceptions of what stories women write, and what we want to see. We welcome a diversity of women’s interests and stories. VIWFF is committed to highlighting the best stories the world has to offer that are written by women. Women tell amazing, dynamic, interesting, thought-provoking, affecting, inspiring, funny and down-right exciting stories. We want to read them all!
This category is a competition.
Winner receives a cash prize.
Official Selections (finalists) receive a festival pass and are invited to attend VIWFF 2020. (March 3-8, 2020, in Vancouver, British Columbia.) Travel and accommodation are the responsibility of the attendee.
