Alliance of Women Filmmakers' scriptwriting competition serves spotlights writers creating unique and powerful roles for women. This script competition was established to further the mission of Alliance of Women Filmmakers to help advance the careers of writers and filmmakers creating diverse and powerful screen images of women from all ethnicities.

Five finalists will receive an invite to the 2019 #Lawomensfest where the winning script will be announced at the closing night reception. In addition, finalists will receive exclusive invites to AWF sponsored event throughout 2019. Past events include "Women Who Run the Show" a panel hosted by Women of Warner Bros. which featured women content creators behind hit WBTV and DC shows Arrow, Blindspot and Riverdale.

Alliance of Women Filmmakers was established 15 years ago with a goal to increase opportunities for women filmmakers. The organization produces The Los Angeles Women's International Film Festival (www.lawomensfest.com) which showcases hundreds of films made by women filmmakers worldwide who share the same passion for creating powerful screen images of women.

Now going into its eighth year, the script competition and festival continue to provide a valuable avenue of exposure for talented women filmmakers, to share their diverse stories and bring awareness to critical issues through visual media.
