Athena List 2016 busca guiones con fuertes protagonistas femeninas

Natalie Portman and Ruth Bader Ginsburg

By Melissa Silverstein

The Athena Film Festival team is seeking scripts for the 2016 edition of the Athena List.

An integral part of the festival's celebration of women and leadership, the Athena List is an annual slate of 3-5 screenplays with female leaders or strong female protagonists that have yet to be made into films. Last year, the list was profiled in Entertainment Weekly, and one of the films from the first class of winners, "On the Basis of Sex," will go into production early next year with Natalie Portman starring as Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Time.com wrote of the list, “The Black List has a new gender-conscious cousin.”

The Athena Film Festival screens feature films, documentaries and shorts dedicated to highlighting women’s leadership in real life and in the fictional world. The 6th annual Athena Film Festival, which will include conversations with producers, directors and Hollywood stars, as well as workshops for filmmakers, will take place at Barnard College in New York City on February 18-21, 2016.

What We Look For:

• Screenplays must include a strong woman character in a leadership role at the center of the story

• Must be between 80-120 pages (Entries must be for feature-length films only -- no shorts will be accepted)

• Must be written in English

The screenplay needs to be complete and ready for production. Do not submit early drafts.

The Athena Film Festival is committed to ensuring that filmmakers and screenwriters across the globe get their stories about women’s leadership to the world.

All submissions should complete this form.
