  • Every writer should feel gratitude to contests directed by reputable persons and read by big named companies. Thank you, Jennifer Brooks. Thank you, Radmin Company for giving writers like me opportunities like Filmmakers. Count on many submissions from me.

  • Fantastic communication for those selected throughout the competition. It is such an honor to have my screenplay "Legacy" chosen as a semi-finalist! Fingers crossed that it makes it to the finals! Even if it doesn't though, being selected for this contest is an incredible honor no matter where you fall in the judging.

    Prestigious and totally worth the submission fee. One of the most professional competitions for screenwriters available; I am honored to be selected. The communication has been fantastic and the opportunity to get my work read by leading industry professionals is all I could ask for. I will be submitting again in the future. Thank you FISW.
