    The organizers carefully evaluate the films as the reviews of films posted online are written after close consideration. The relatively low fees are a plus. I will receive a printed certificate and a trophy for my awarded film “Agrinoui” free of charge which is an appreciated gesture. Recommended!

    The feedback I received on my script was substantial and quite useful. The reader clearly did a close reading of the text and was able to raise questions that led to a significant rewrite. This is a smart, professional and respectful group.
