    I cannot say enough wonderful things about George and Happenstance Horror Fest! Even though had to cancel going in person from awaiting covid testing/sick that week, I heard it was an absolute blast, and we are honored to even win an audience award there. Cannot wait to keep a long relationship going with this festival for sure!

    Incredibly honored to have my screenplay "Irina" named a winner at Happenstance Horror Fest. Great communication -- I'll certainly be submitting future material.
