TIFF–CBC Films Screenwriter Award
Dec 05, 2018
The TIFF–CBC Films Screenwriter Award will provide $15,000 to a Canadian writer of an outstanding feature-film screenplay, supporting them to develop their project. The Award is open to experienced screenwriters who are female, or who are Indigenous, or who belong to a visible minority, or who identify as having a disability. Applicants must have a writer or director credit on a feature film that has been presented at one of this Award’s recognized festivals. Our commitment is to fund the development of high-quality productions that reflect, represent, and reframe diverse perspectives through character-driven stories at the centre of the Canadian experience.
The winner of the 2017 Award was Jorge Manzano, for his screenplay The Strike. We now invite screenwriters to apply for the next Award.
