I think it’s the timely and respectful feedback that has influenced me to enter the festival. For a reasonable price, I can get insightful feedback and a chance to have it read aloud. And it’s a chance you get monthly, which is cool.

Read testimonials from the 2016 Festival Submissions:

Terrific reading of my screenplay. Please thank the actors for me! The initial feedback was encouraging and it also appropriately threw light on some needs of the script.
– Robert Tolz (Screenplay, Renassance Man)

Absolutely outstanding notes and I can’t thank you enough. Obviously Charlie Kaufman are difficult waters to sail but I am determined to rock on. The first thing I throw out of the boat is He Who Appears To Be He. But a girl can dream can’t she? Count on one thing you will be receiving my rewrite with a boatload of gratitude.
– Kelly Karam (Screenplay, Ole: Rising Above Mith)

Thank you for the feedback! I appreciate it and will work to improve it.
– Evan Schullery (Screenplay, Due South)

Thank you so much for including my spec script in your festival. The feedback you’ve given me is very detailed and useful. I’ll make sure that I make the necessary changes to the script.
– Linsen Oyosa (TV Spec, Brooklyn Nine-Nine)

I want to thank you immensely for the feedback! I’m truly grateful. Feedback and reviews are the main reasons I submit to competitions such as this one. I’m most pleased with this one in particular because the reviewer took the time to make suggestions as to how I could make the script better, most notably with some of my character relationships.
– Chastity Lively (Screenplay, Happy Holidays)

Thanks so much for your constructive and insightful comments! I’m glad you enjoyed SMITHEREENS.
– Hersh Rephun (TV PILOT, Smithereens)

Gratified that people seemed to get it, and like it. I like hearing the comparisons to Modern Family. I made this to be entertaining and I’m so glad that people seemed to be entertained.

A producer friend of mine who worked on this script suggested sending it in. What a great idea.

    The feedback was professional and insightful. The reader gave very clear suggestions that were both workable and improved the quality of the script. The reading was fun to watch.

    Very positive experience. Learned so very much for only the ten dollar entry fee. The little questionnaire they sent to all the winners was the most interesting part because it forced me to put onto paper my particular writing secrets and habits. Great communication. Thanks so much Comedy Film & Screenplay Festival!
