Stephens College’s Citizen Jane Film Festival is fast approaching and the Stephens College MFA in Screenwriting (where my wife, Rosanne is a professor) will be out in force. Current MFA students will be presenting papers at the Festival, Stephens College will be sponsoring a production of a 5-minute film and hosting a live reading of the winner’s screenplay.
Here are some of our big events:

The Stephens College MFA in Screenwriting Program is proud to present six of our fabulous students who will introduce the audience to six female screenwriters whose bold, brash, brilliant words have enhanced our film experience, but whose names have been left out of the textbooks.
