Objective

To showcase independent screenplays and laud those who work independently to create the blueprints for our independent films; to seek out screenplays which appeal to the filmmakers and audiences that frequent the Woods Hole Film Festival: to present a reading of a winning screenplay to the WHFF audience and allow the screenwriter to hear their words made real and receive feedback from an audience, actors, and filmmakers.
