The audience seemed to really like the film and that validates all the effort and creativity and sacrifices you make to bring something like this into reality. You hope what you create will connect with people and it seemed like my film did that. I also appreciate how smart the comments were. Folks really got into the spirit of what “The Blood Of Love,” is about, which is: How far would you go to hold onto the person you love?

This is the 5th or 6th time I’ve submitted a script to the festival over the past few years. I think it’s the timely and respectful feedback that has influenced me to enter the festival. For a reasonable price, I can get insightful feedback and a chance to have it read aloud. And it’s a chance you get monthly, which is cool.
– John Arthur-Ingram (Three Play – Feature Screenplay)

The prize. A table read is much more exciting than yet another copy of final draft. The reviewer called my writing brilliant, and I didn’t have to bribe or blackmail him/her. That felt nice.
– Olaf Baumann (Death Don’t Us Part – Feature Screenplay)

I loved the idea of actors reading my story. Apart from the potential publicity, this seemed like such a privilege. And I really appreciated the feedback. It was encouraging, but also spot-on as far as weaknesses.
– Lauren Hoekstra (Yellow Touch Red You’re Dead – Feature Screenplay)

All submissions receive full feedback from the industry on their work.

I found it very refreshing and I was glued to the screen. It was good to hear the audiences reactions to the film and what they took away from it. It really is exciting when you find an engaged audience.

    Wonderful to hear the audience response to the film since I was unable to attend! A very sweet little festival run with care.

    What a rare and wonderful experience to see people talking and caring about your movie when you're not even there. Having the video of the audience feedback is a real gift -- and good for your ego too! :)

    I felt that the script reader put forth a very genuine effort to engage with the story I was trying to tell, despite its flaws, and provided honest, helpful constructive criticism. The actors also did a great job reading the scene!
