Jess Grant

I'm a screenwriter from Seattle looking to meet people, learn more craft and pitch my projects. I attended the AFF in 2014 and am excited to return.
I entered 3 scripts in this year's contest: a feature-length family/political drama called "Engine Five-Seven-Three," about a train engineer involved in a deadly oil-by-rail derailment; a TV pilot dramedy called "Little Drummer Grrrl," about a young female drummer trying to get ahead in Seattle's rock music scene; and a spec episode of the Netflix original series, "Longmire."
I'll be hanging with my Homeys while I'm in Austin -- fellow graduates of the UW screenwriting program -- but I look forward to meeting many more people from around the world.
