    It's so nice to have a script competition focused on faith based content! The coverage is well worth it too! The feedback was thoughtful and provided meaningful notes that could really help elevate my script to the next level. The coverage was great constructive criticism. Communication with the festival was clear and easy from the beginning. I'm honored to have placed as a finalist!
