Read recent testimonials:

This is the 5th or 6th time I’ve submitted a script to the festival over the past few years. I think it’s the timely and respectful feedback that has influenced me to enter the festival. For a reasonable price, I can get insightful feedback and a chance to have it read aloud. And it’s a chance you get monthly, which is cool.
– John Arthur-Ingram (Three Play – Feature Screenplay)

The prize. A table read is much more exciting than yet another copy of final draft. The reviewer called my writing brilliant, and I didn’t have to bribe or blackmail him/her. That felt nice.
– Olaf Baumann (Death Don’t Us Part – Feature Screenplay)

I loved the idea of actors reading my story. Apart from the potential publicity, this seemed like such a privilege. And I really appreciated the feedback. It was encouraging, but also spot-on as far as weaknesses.
– Lauren Hoekstra (Yellow Touch Red You’re Dead – Feature Screenplay)
