Mikki Daughtry & Tobias Iaconis - Writers of Five Feet Apart and The Curse of La Llorona
Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis became writing partners in 2012 after meeting in the Twin Bridges Screenwriting Salon run by Joe Bratcher and Judy Farrell. Their first project together was adapting the Jack Kilborn action-horror novel, Afraid.
In 2013, their script Elsewhere made the Black List and the next year they were hired to write an English-language remake of Sleep Tight (Spanish: Mientras duermes, "While You Sleep"), a Spanish thriller-horror film directed by Jaume Balaguer.
In 2015, Daughtry and Iaconis sold a thriller pitch, The Children, to New Line Cinema which became The Curse of La llorona premiering at the SXSW Film Festival in 2019 where it was revealed to be a part of The Conjouring cinematic universe. It has earned over $120M worldwide on a production budget of $9M.
In January 2017, Daughtry and Iaconis sold a young adult-themed pitch, Five Feet Apart, to CBS Films. The film was released in 2019, directed by Justin Baldoni and starring Cole Sprouse and Haley Lu Richardson. Five Feet Apart has made nearly $80M worldwide on a production budget of $7M. A novel based upon the screenplay has become a number-one New York Times Best Seller.
Daughtry and Iaconis were included in 2017 The Young and Hungry List and are currently writing the screenplay based on the social media sensation Esther the Wonder Pig for CBS Films. The film will follow the true story of how a couple adopts what they believe to be a five-pound pigmy pig, which then grows to 650 pounds, inspiring the local community and millions of online followers in the process.
Update: Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis have signed on to pen the screenplay for Netflix’s film adaptation of the children’s fantasy-horror book, Nightbooks, by author J. A. White. The pic is being produced by Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert of Ghost House Pictures and Mason Novick and Michelle Knudsen of MXN Entertainment. Congrats!

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.

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.

We approach our goals by working with a range of partners to increase funding, employment, and promotional opportunities for those identifying as women.
