    Very easy to see why Festigious has such a great overall rating - a really well run competition with excellent and friendly communication. The social media is very good with wonderful imagery you can use in your own social media. Thanks so very much for the awards for my film "The Last Man on Earth".

    Great communication and I was very happy to pick up an award for December 2019. Perhaps contact with distributors to get the screenplay on TV would be good.
