Competition finalists are invited to a Mentor’s Brunch where they can discuss their projects with the Festival’s Screenwriters Tributee. The Competition has also served as a launching platform for promising screenwriters. Writer/director Debra Granik won the Competition in 2002 for her scrip t Down to the Bone. Her new film, Winter’s Bone, leads the 2010 award season with an impressive number of nominations.
