Nashville Film Festival Announces Screenwriting Competition Awards

The Nashville film Festival has announced the winners of the 2015 Screenwriting Competition. The competition garnered more than 1,350 submissions from all over the world. Finalists and semi-finalists won all-festival passes to attend the festival, network with filmmakers and industry, and attend educational panels and presentations.

"I was especially pleased to see that our panels were sold out," said Debra Pinger, director of the competition. "It shows how passionate writers are about developing their craft. With screenwriters from Ireland, Russia and China in attendance, as well as student and professional screenwriters, we are proud that Nashville is attracting quality scripts and talented writers. The script, after all, is the foundation of every film."
