    Very excited to have a script selected as a Semi-finalist at South Shore. As Long Island filmmakers, we're thrilled to see another quality festival starting in our community.

    My screenplay came third, but WOW! What a fabulous festival. Despite COVID19 and all the political turmoil that have felled Film Festivals 100 times biggdr, they kept on target and on schedule all the way. Although the freebee review was short, they were only too happy to provide further comments and advice, even after the festival had closed. If you have a great script, this is the festival for you. 10 out of 10 all the way!

  • I’m honored that my screenplay, “Little Things Mean a Lot,” was named a Finalist in the South Shore Film Festival. I was very impressed that the judges took the time to fact-check my script which depicts the remarkable life of Kitty Kallen.
