These tickets can be picked up at the theater during the festival as they will not be available anywhere else.
Participating in the Q&A
Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your screening. You can bring anyone from your cast or crew. The Q&A usually takes 10-30 minutes depending on how engaged the audience is.
Promoting your project
It is very important to promote your film on social media, local organizations, and schools that pertains to your film because we don't have the means or the resources to reach every avenue.
All Official Selection screenplay writers will receive a 7 day pass to enjoy and network with other filmmakers.
The winning scripts will be announced the last day of the festival.
We are unable to provide any type of travel stipend, but if you decide to attend the fest on your own, we will provide you with a festival pass for the entire length of the festival. If you attend, we will, of course, introduce you at the screening of your film.
