  • From the clear communication with organizers through the process of watching the results come in, the Play Film Festival was an amazing experience. I am beyond thrilled that my script, The Boy Roach won best feature screenplay. Great festival experience. Kudos to the staff for making it feel warm and inviting during this time.
