Overall Rating
  • This festival is definitely worth submitting to. Definitely make this one of the festivals you enter your project into. Well worth it. Just wish they would get themselves on IMDB so you can list the win or selection :(

  • I had a great experience at the Macoproject Film Festival. Not only did they honor my work with their annual screenplay competition, but the overall quality of the short films that they screened was very impressive. In addition, the creator/co-directors of the festival were very accommodating and made everyone feel welcome. I would definitely submit to this competition again, and I highly recommend it to other creatives.

    Wow--I was thrilled to have my short, thriller script, "Condemned", chosen as '1st Place Screenplay' in the 2018 Macoproject Film Festival. This is a serious, professionally run event and I am so honored to be a part of it and to have been selected among such great talent. I urge all filmmakers and screenwriters to submit and to support the Macoproject Film Festival!
