High Scribe Competition Submission
The High Scribe screenwriting competition selects an emerging writer and welcomes the individual into everything SVFF has to offer; mentorship with our network of award-winning screenwriters and producers including Will McCormack, Chris Moore, and Heather Rae, a week-long residency, and access to panels and parties at the Festival.
The winner of the High Scribe Competition will be invited to return for a week later in the year as Writer-In-Residence at the historic Ernest and Mary Hemingway House, owned and operated by The Community Library.
