Screenwriting student Nancy Raven Smith‘s screenplay “Horsing Around” was chosen as the winning Romantic Comedy Screenplay at the 2007 Broad Humor Film Festival. The Broad Humor festival is the first of its kind to spotlight film comedies by women.

“Horsing Around” is about a bookish professor who impulsively marries a female Equestrian who loves her horse, but he hides the fact that he’s afraid of animals. When they move to a farm, he’s forced to overcome his fear or risk losing her.

Nancy Raven Smith’s previous screenplays have won awards and recognition from competitions such as Slamdance, Disney (top 7 Finalist) and Worldfest Houston.
She studied primarily with Writers’ Program instructors, Linda Palmer, Kate Wright and Neil Landau and feels their teaching was critical to her success. “Linda, Kate and Neil each teach a unique aspect of screenwriting and generously share their extraordinary knowledge and experience with students.”
