WIFVNE Members: Screenplay Development Opportunity

27 Jan 2023 2:00 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Sporting Events are the last great unifiers in our country. Government, movies, and music are now proven to be divisive. Only sports can channel our highs and lows in a way that allows us to feel passionate in ways solely dedicated to our entertainment. Though we may cheer for different teams, we all love the honor and camaraderie around the game. Those feelings bring out the best in us when life is scary, sad, joyous, and even confusing. Buffalo Bill Damar Hamlin's tragic hospitalization and miraculous recovery fostered a wave of goodwill and brought the country together. People cheered the dawn of the Patriots dynasty after 9/11. Sports speak to some of the deepest needs we have as humans: to belong to a group, to feel excited, to handle risks, and to overcome the odds.

Blue collar blood runs through the veins of New England. Whether ending British rule or the Curse of the Bambino, Bostonians have a proud heritage of reaching down one last time to summon the will to win. As a result, New England is ripe with stories of those who overcome the greatest odds for their day in the sun. We wish to explore stories about individuals who have broken through glass ceilings. 

We seek people who have inspiring and aspiring stories with universal messages of hope and perseverance. Stories that give us hope through the medium of a ball, puck, or athletic ability.

A team of Hollywood producers, with ties to New England, are looking for scripts or fully vetted treatments based on true sports stories right out of New England to be developed and produced into a major feature film. We are looking for the female gaze for this project. 

This contest is open to Women in Film & Video - New England (WIFVNE) members in good standing, who are female or identify as female. You may join WIFVNE if you are not a WIFVNE Member and would like to submit.

To submit:  Submit a 1-page treatment via a Google Form, provided by WIFVNE, between February 10 and March 5, 2023. Details will be sent to WIFVNE Members via WIFVNE Members Only email.
