Screenwriting is where it’s at, or should we say … where it begins.  At DIFF, we believe that every great picture starts with a great screenplay, and so we set out to honor those writers who are committed to the craft — those who work tirelessly to create new worlds, rich characters, compelling conflict, and stories that forever change us.

STORYLINE’s competition series awards winning screenplays with DIFF’s Vitruvian Man Award.  Quarterly winners will automatically be entered into the annual competition for their shot at The Leo — DIFF’s most prized commendation.  In addition to The Leo, our winner will receive an award package from our festival sponsors.
