Duvall's script is a double winner

 

A script titled "Sanctuary" by Professor John Duvall has advanced into the quarter-final round of the 9th annual Writer's Network Screenplay & Fiction Competition. This year's contest attracted 2,338 entries from around the world.

"Sanctuary" was also selected as a first-round finalist in the Scr(i)pt magazine Open Door Screenplay competition. Approximately 450 scripts were entered in this competition, and just 29 were selected as first-round finalists.

The screenplay, registered with Writer's Guild West, tells the story of Father Martin Bloom, a Catholic priest in a Midwestern city who is undergoing a vocational crisis when he falls in love with Sister Teresa, a young nun. When Bloom's mentor, Monsignor Dennehy, dies violently and mysteriously, the two lovers are among the suspects.
