SPECIAL GUEST: Arthur Rains-McNally
Arthur is enthralled by fantasy and hyperrealism. His writing revolves around themes of identity, self-discovery, and the corrosive nature of power. Arthur’s TV pilot, Tabitha, Witch of the Order, was awarded funding assistance from the Washington Filmworks’ Innovation Lab program and is currently playing film festivals.
After surviving the wilds of eastern Washington Arthur now draws inspiration from his wife, Kathryn, and cats, Peng Peng and Hester, in the techtropolis of Seattle.

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.
