    Thank you, Persia! We really loved your script 'Adult Adolescent' :) We were sorry you couldn't make it in person!

  • Had a great experience working with Caroline + Mara in the lead up to the festival. While I wasn’t able to watch our film SORRY in person, having the streaming version was helpful. And it was pretty fun to have friends local to Atlanta in the audience. Great communication and excellent submissions. Thanks again for the award and for showcasing women in film!
