The feedback I received on my screenplay was extremely helpful and supportive. My placement in the contest allowed my first scene to by read by professional actors and it was a thrill to hear my characters come to life. This festival more than met my expectations in regards to my submission and follow through on their part. Thank you!!!!

Director Statement

As a filmmaker I’m fascinated by the spaces in between dreams and waking and how this can become a place to tell stories and experience ideas in a way that can that can plumb the depths of a viewer’s psyche. We all dream and inhabit the world of surrealism and symbolism nightly. I want to translate this experience through evocatively visual storytelling, exploring tales that are at once universal and at the same time, strangely unique.
