  • I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you, to the jury, and organizers of "Cheonan International Screenplay Awards" for winning "Best Fantasy Screenplay" for my super short series: "Dream Files" Ep.1.1 - "Almost Three O'Clock." Their vision to create a space for the work of screenwriters is presented here on FilmFreeway clearly, and concise. Feedback and results are prompt. A recommended festival I will be watching to grow.
