Washington, DC is the center of political power in the country, but it is also home to a community of highly skilled screenwriters. To draw attention to their talent and help get their work in front of major producers, award winning screenwriter / producer Monica Lee Bellais, a former WIFV Board Member founded and created Spotlight on Screenwriters. The yearly catalogue showcases screenplays written by WIFV members. This unprecedented project is part of our Annual ScriptDC writers/producers/directors’ conference and a 35th Anniversary project. Spotlight on Screenwriters is made possible in part with the generous support of the DC Office of Cable Television, Film, Music & Entertainment and Interface Media Group. Questions should be sent to director@wifv.org. Bona fide producers of at least three feature films with national distribution may request a copy of the Spotlight on Screenwriters catalogue by emailing director@wifv.org.

The third edition of the catalogue was revealed on Saturday, November 5, 2016.
