Overall Rating
  • Salvatore Bono

    Excellent festival. I recommend participating when open. I'll be doing so with my next completed script. Winning Best Screenplay category has already generated lots of PR buzz the accomplishment. Thank you Team White Rock for your support and faith in my Best Screenplay Thriller, "Executed and Risen."
