Event Details

The NWA Screenwriters Collective will host a night celebrating their writers’ journeys from script to screen in a spring showcase featuring six short films written by members of the Collective on Saturday, April 13, 2024, at 7 pm in the Pat and Willard Walker Community Room at the Fayetteville Public Library. A panel with the writers and filmmakers will follow the screening. 

This event is open to the public and is co-sponsored by Arkansas Cinema Society. Tickets are $25.00 each and include complimentary hors d’oeuvres and beverages. Space is limited and tickets should be purchased in advance via Venmo (@nwascreenwriterscollective). This is a fundraising event and all proceeds support a new short film production from the collective, continuing the education and art of film.

Current NWA Screenwriters Collective president and award-winning filmmaker Raelyn Munneke is encouraging anyone that is curious about the script to screen process to come to the April 13th event. Munneke says, “Learning about the path of art on the screen enhances the audience’s film experience.” 

Munneke is one of the featured writers for the Spring Showcase. Other screenwriters’ films include Rastlin Clem, Kate Siengenthaler, Josh Baxter & Clayton Bowman, DZ Rife and Marc Crandall.

“Celebrating with us at the Spring Showcase is a great way to see what our collective is about and a wonderful way to connect with the artistic community in Northwest Arkansas. Our writers are excited to share their experiences!” says Lindley.
