    Very kindly gave me a waiver as I was flat broke at the time. Unfortunately, it was a bit far for me to travel to, so I could not attend and cannot attest to networking, but SELECTED status was nice for a waiver, last minute entry. Yes, I would most certainly recommend this to others and look forward to making future entries.

  • It was an honor to have my script selected as a finalist for the festival. Like many of us, it is unfortunate to not be able to attend a great festival. Thank you all at Badass for your hard work. Blessings and be safe.

    We are planning a small local gathering with small award gala and a few screenings for BA6 once life gets back to normal to celebrate the BA6 award winners.

    Was not able to attend the festival due to Covid which was a real shame but David and his team always kept me informed about everything and were very communicative. I appreciate the 4 selections and 1 finalist nod.
