    Was great. The 1 for 1 at the bar after screening is worth the admission.

    The communication for this festival was fantastic - the organizers take great care of their screenwriters - and you can't beat the prestige of the venues. I was so disappointed not to be able to attend. I will definitely submit in the future and highly recommend this fest!

    You really can't compete with the location of the Chinese Theaters in Hollywood. All movies projected in DCP. Communication was excellent. Loved being a part of this.
