Fantasy/Sci-Fi Festival Testimonal – June 15 2020

I was really excited to hear the different interpretations of the film. It’s actually a relief to hear that people are able to accept the level of ambiguity and try and use the elements in the film to make their own meanings, and they came up with so many fantastic ideas! I was really pleased, as this film was partially a test to see if we could capture a snapshot of what we want the feature to be, and see whether it would work with an audience. (although the feature has a much tighter narrative, but we aspire to give it that otherworldly ambiguity. Again another balancing act)

Sci-Fi/Fantasy Festival Testimonial – May 26 2020

After coming close to finals in other mainstream festivals, I thought I might have a better chance seeking out ones that were specifically for the genre that fit my pilot. I’m so happy I did. My experience with the Sci-Fi/Fantasy Screenplay Festival has been a wonderful one. They were always cordial and in contact, even before I won. And after winning, I was able to see and hear actors reading the script, helping it come alive. It was fantastic. I would recommend this festival for anyone with a fantasy and/or sci-fi script.5 Star Review
