  • Script Summit was the first film festival I attended and it succeeded my expectations. They did a great job organizing everything, especially since it was their first year. I know they learned a ton that will make next year perfect. Well done. I had a great time.

    Excellence series of script seminars. The table read and analysis was very insightful. Loved the ongoing, timely communications during the seminar. Geoffrey and his team delivered and even put on an impromptu session for those who missed one of their seminars. I will certainly attend again. Harold
