Overall Rating
  • Festigious is certainly prestigious! It's another fun, but competitive film festival that makes it even more exciting! My feature comedy script was awarded Best Comedy Screenplay for August 2021. The festival is well organized and with great communication and timely notifications along the way. Thank you, Festigious, for one memorable experience!
