CASCADIA Now Accepting Submissions for Script Studio

CASCADIA International Women’s Film Festival will be open for submissions for its popular Script Studio workshop beginning November 20. 

The Script Studio is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, May 7, at the Mount Baker Theatre in the Encore Room and is open to the public. It is part of a series of workshops and events during CASCADIA's annual film festival, scheduled for May 4-7, 2023, in Bellingham, WA, and online. The festival showcases exceptional films directed or co-directed by women from around the world.

The Script Studio educational workshop is open for short film scripts written by women from anywhere in the world and designed to provide script writers with discussions and evaluations of their work. It includes a live reading of the scripts by actors followed by a panel discussion by film industry professionals. Panels in previous years have included film producers, directors, actors and casting directors. It is preferable that writers attend the presentation for direct participation in the discussions but alternatives like Skype have also been used. 

Scripts should be in screenplay form and no longer than 20 pages. All narrative genres and film formats are acceptable including animation. Submissions should be sent to by January 31, 2023. Writers will be notified of acceptance in February, 2023.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
