I thought the feedback was quite helpful. The notes were very careful and clear, so I sent in another script this year, only to be excited, grateful, and pleasantly surprised to have this script move to the next level.

The festival is a unique opportunity to showcase your work. Not only is the feedback terrific, but I do not know of any other festival that will create a production of the winning works.

I thought that the feedback video was one of the best gifts this short film could bring me. Everything the audience said was so precise, every emotion… They captured the essence of the film! I never thought it could go so far. It really inspired me to keep on working.

    Outstanding screenplay competition. The quality of the notes I received was superb - the best of any contest out there. Add this festival to your must participate list.

    What an unbelievable festival. These guys provided an amazing experience that frankly was eons above what I expected. I received a well edited feedback reel from a well curated question and answer session they held at the screening that gave me plenty to build off for my next film. This festival might not have the biggest name, but it’s very well run and shouldn’t be missed if you are looking for a great experience with invaluable feedback.

    They should rename this festival the 'Priceless' Film Festival. Worth the fee about a hundred times over, such a knowledgeable film audience and humbling, thought-provoking comments. To pick up Best Film was a real honour. This festival is very special! Thank you so much
