WIFVNE is proud to announce the Winner and Runners Up to its 2021 Screenwriting Contest! The contest took place over this past spring, with scripts judged by three esteemed panelists - Jennifer Rapaport, Wendy Ewan and Denise Widman.
Screenplays were a response to the theme of "Survival" and all genders were encouraged to submit original work.
