The Athena Film Festival and IRIS are partnering to present the Athena IRIS Screenwriting Lab. The Athena IRIS Screenwriting Lab is designed for female writers who have not yet had a feature-length fictional script produced. Screenplays must include one or more strong female characters in leadership roles at the center of the story and must be feature-length narratives.About IRIS:
IRIS seeks to amplify the female voice through narrative film. Founders Elizabeth Kaiden, Kyle Ann Stokes, and Nitza Wilon created The Writers Lab, co-produced by New York Women in Film & Television, in collaboration with The Writers Guild of America, East and supported by Meryl Streep and Oprah Winfrey, to develop screenplays written by women over 40. IRIS is committed to expanding its efforts to support and promote female screenwriters and other women in film.
