  • In celebration of the upcoming release of A WRINKLE IN TIME and its visionary director, Ava DuVernay, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and Nissan North America have launched a nationwide search for the next visionary filmmaker! During this challenge, Disney is seeking to inspire innovative filmmakers – especially female filmmakers - to step up and share their unique storytelling voice. One lucky winner will be awarded $100,000 to create their own film, a trip to Hollywood for the World Premiere of A Wrinkle in Time, and an all-new 2018 Nissan LEAF!

    Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time opens in theatres in 3D March 9th!
    From visionary director Ava DuVernay comes Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” an epic adventure based on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic which takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light and, ultimately, the triumph of love. Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light.

    I'm a male and I'd love to join, but I'm not that sure about my chances of winning now, because they explicitly say they particularly want females to join

    i think you should go for it... she was just encouraging women to try because the door is often closed to us and she wanted to be clear tat it would not be the case. i honestly believe they will choose the best PERSON who has a story to tell... go for it!

    Not very visionary though to make this possible only for US Residents and (pretty much) for girls...

    Good luck to everyone that's entering the contest and becoming the next filmaker!!!!!! #Beawarrior

    1:17 will be extremely surprised if a male wins this. I am all for the strong female presence in this movie, and happy for the world that my daughter is going to grow up in. But this absolutely feels like a contest that an aspiring female director has an upper hand, but just say that, I(a male filmmaker) am cool with it. Good luck to everyone that enters ❤️👍

  • Aphrodite Lee (Jan 22, 2018)

    i hear ya... and i see a LOT of guys on this thread are feeling like that but i do not believe that to be the case... i think it was just important for her to encourage women to try... if you have a story to tell PLEASE TRY cuz honestly... there's room enough for us all!
