NVFF SCREENPLAY COMPETITION
In partnership with Screencraft and Coverfly, we proudly debut our inaugural Screenplay Competition. The 2 Grand Prize Winners are participating as Artists-in-Residence. Acclaimed writers Jenny Lumet and Jim Rash are joining this year’s Festival Faculty to speak with our Artists-in-Residence about career development and creative evolution in storytelling. The 17 other Finalists are attending the festival as fellow “artists”. We congratulate them all.
