Overall Rating
  • No communicaion at all. My screenplay was "selected", but after that it was never updated to anything else after. I waited. Then, I decided to e-mail Gil International Screenwriting Awards (their Gmail inbox). After many weeks, no replies. I e-mailed once more 3 weeks after that first attempt. Still no answer. If this form would've allowed, I would´ve given them half a star (instead of a full one) for communication and hospitality. I can´t judge the other values, because they never answered.

  • Thanks for awarding "Enter the Room" as Best Short Film for your festival. The communication was clear and concise and I had a good experience overall. I will consider submitting future projects to Gil International Screenwriting Awards.

  • We are thankful and humbled our Screenplay, Crayola Zen, was chosen as Award Winner in the Gil International Screenwriting Awards. We are huge fans of the great films that are produced in this region of the world, because these films are original stories that always touch the heartstrings. It's such an honor to be recognized among them. Thank you GISA for your commitment to supporting story-tellers around the world.
