Reel Girls Film Festival

2021 Screenwriting Awards

Each year our Submission Committee and Judges read and evaluate all the submitted scripts, searching for the best screenplays written by young women writers all over the world.  RGFF had a record number of submissions in 2021.  It was a lot of reading! We were impressed by the wide variety of topics and the quality of writing submitted. It really is something to have completed a feature-length script so early in life! These writers accomplished so much and had us eagerly flipping pages well into the night.  Congratulations to each of them!
