    The Footcandle Film Festival, in partnership with The Visiting Writers Series of Lenoir-Rhyne University, held the first year of the Footcandle Scriptwriting Competition in 2019.

    Script submissions, for both feature-length films and short films, were accepted earlier in the year with a committee formed to review all of the applications. A winner was selected for this year's award and will be presented at a special event the evening before the film festival officially begins.

    The winner of this year’s competition will receive their award at a special event on Thursday, September 26th, at 7:00pm at the Belk Centrum on the Lenoir-Rhyne University campus.  The event will consist of the author discussing their work, a table reading of a portion of their script, and a Question-and-Answer session.  The event is free and open to the public.

    We hope to have you join us for this very special, inaugural event!
