Thank you for your terrific communication and kind words about the script!

  • FilmCon is not only a fantastic and competitive festival, but one in which entrants are welcomed into a community of collaborators. Filmmakers Connect lives up to its name in every sense by creating and strengthening ties among its family of filmmakers through its myriad platforms. They want to hear from you and know that your process will inform someone else's.
