Shawn Mahan


Shawn is returning to screenwriting after a decade or so of letting real life take over. He's been fortunate, through the years, to have some almost success with my writing. For most of the last 20 years he's managed Art House Cinemas in Dallas, including the Angelika, the Magnolia and the Texas Theatre. Three great children add substantially to his accomplishments and experience.

Shawn's screenwriting accolades include:

  • For Standby Hers

    • 2019 Story Pros Semifinalist

    • 2018 Austin Film Festival Comedy Second Rounder

    • 2016 Nicholl Fellowship Quarterfinalist

  • For Mountain Fire

    • 1995 Nicholl Fellowship Quarterfinalist
