Wanted: Female screenwriters and writers from diverse backgrounds

A new film anthology project that is by, for and about women, is seeking scripts from women from diverse backgrounds.

Developed by screenwriting graduates from RMIT, ‘Girls Like Us’ is a film project aimed at providing a platform for women to tell their stories. 

The project is currently seeking nine short film scripts about the female experience from a range of Victorian female screenwriters to help bring them to the screen in a feature film anthology reflecting all walks of life.

Films should be between five and 10 minutes in length and ideally, feature a female lead.

Short story writers are also welcome to submit pieces for adaptation to the screen with screenwriting support from the project. 

Following the sourcing of scripts, the nine films will be produced by women in all lead creative roles as well as crew roles.  

This film currently has a budget of $10,000 with the hopes of obtaining extra funding from government bodies as well as crowd funding and the plan is to obtain funding for post so we can have a professional edit, colour grade, and sound mix. 

Submissions are currently open. Find out more and send your pitch in now at the ‘Girls Like Us’ website.
