Scriptation Founded by a television writer and script coordinator, Scriptation is the #1 PDF annotation app for film and television professionals. It supports all common annotation types including highlights, drawings, notes, free text, images, sound recordings, and more. Combined with its proprietary note transferring algorithm, Transcription, which analyzes script changes and intelligently transfers a user’s annotations into each new draft, Scriptation is the only paperless solution built for the entire production crew.
Finish Line Script Competition redefines the screenwriting competition, embracing the rewrite as an essential component in any successful screenplay, and incentivizing every entrant to dig deeper, find their best draft, and win. With the guidance of a seasoned script consultant, you can work on your rewrites AFTER submitting your script to the competition and then, after reviewing their notes, RESUBMIT your script to us, having improved your draft and thus bettering your chances to WIN! Our screenplay consultants will provide comprehensive development notes (5-6 pages) on your screenplay or pilot, for as many drafts as you choose, focusing on the fact that the STORY and WRITER are KING. Just as with development execs at studios, production companies or networks, we will go through draft after draft with you to get your script into TIPTOP shape. With the Finish Line, winning is always within reach, perhaps only a draft away.
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 In Film and Television Vancouver (WIFTV) is a member-driven, not-for-profit society, which addresses systemic barriers to women’s equal participation in the production and dissemination of screen-based media. We approach our goals by working with a range of partners to increase funding, employment, and promotional opportunities for those identifying as women. We offer professional skill-based training and create opportunities to further women-led projects. We present and publicly celebrate the achievement of women in screen-based media, primarily, but not exclusively, through The Vancouver International Women in Film Festival.
Looking forward to gathering with our fellow writers and others interested in the film industry.
Don't forget to bring your friends and family!
