    Great response time for their reviews of their submitters projects. Honest and thoughtful to match. I recommend this festival to those who want their work reviewed without any harsh criticism.

  • As always, PixelsGARAGE lived up to expectation. I enjoy submitting to this competition, and would highly recommend it to other Screenwriters. I am nearly finished a full rewrite to the script True Destiny, now known as The Phantom Council. I can't wait to resubmit it.
