I was very happy my movie sold and people got what I wanted to say. The audience totally got it. It made me believe in myself tenfold

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.

It was very pleasing to hear the feedback from the festival. I was flattered. I’m glad our film was well-received.

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.
- David M. Hyde (The Fireworks Stand, Feature Screenplay)

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.

It was terrific. I very much enjoyed seeing my script performed! It was helpful to hear & see my dialogue read out loud. Now I know where to make further improvements.

    Great people I waS excited to be part of the competition. But I didn't hear back who actually won ?

  • This was BY FAR our best Festival experience. The US venue is Regal Cinemas in DTLA at LA Live/Staples center. Great seats, great screens, great food with beer/wine. Accepted films get at least 20!!! comped tix and additional guests may reserve for free or by donation. Our short, American Boy, won Best Film for this event but all films got an edited compilation of audience feedback (here's ours: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=69lHptHCrjE ). We got excellent web coverage from the festival before and after. This is truly an outstanding Festival. I haven't reviewed others because I try not to be negative, but they were useless in comparison. This festival made up for all of that. I originally applied because of the term "family" in the title. My film is about kids, but gang murder, so not exactly family fare either. But I hadn't been able to bring the cast and their friends to other festivals because of R-rated content which concerned their parents. This festival split the program so the kids could leave at the intermission.

    I was honored to have Take The Shot get a table read. The cast was terrific and the notes made the screenplay better. I recommend this festival for screenwriters.

    The festival not only screened my film, but hosted an engaging discussion post-screening. As if that was not ENOUGH already, they edited together this video of highlights from the discussion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJgIJ54KsP4 that I absolutely LOVED. Incredible, thank you SO SO much for going the extra mile. :) I really appreciated all of your hard work & critical thought.
