This is a very cool festival, I’ve entered a few times and been both rejected and accepted. In either instance, you are given great feedback which actually includes suggestions….decent ones as well! This is something most festivals do not offer and if they do, they usually charge a lot extra.
The screenings and table reads are a joy to watch. It’s always a thrill to see an audience react to your film or actors reading your lines.
Watch over 150 1st Scene Screenplay Festival Winners:
FULL FEEDBACK on your screenplay from our committee of Professional Screenwriters, Production Heads and Script Consultants.
