Today’s FilmFreeway: Submit to the Action/Adventure Film & Screenplay Festival

I got my appraisal and it was possibly the best I have ever received, not because it was good or complimentary, but because they had obviously read it, and I mean completely and they properly criticized it! So their comments were not only ‘left of field’, but they were an accurate observation and they actually improved the script, not matter how hard they were to swallow. It was so worthwhile it was worth the price of entry just to get that feedback.

Read more testimonials from the festival:

I found the page specific notes to be incredibly helpful. They showed that the reader took time to read and analyze the entire script. And considering the amount of pieces that are submitted, that says a lot.
– Franklin Friedlander, Feature Screenplay “Killer Be Killed”

This is the most intensive and helpful script notes I have received from any contest or paid reader. I would have paid for these notes without having entered the contest. If I had this reader years before, I wouldn’t be so disheartened and soured as I am now on screenwriting. If I ever regain my enthusiasm for screenwriting and film, I will surely follow the constructive notes on a rewrite.
– Todd Bronson, Feature Screenplay “Poaching the Big Muddy”

Thank you very much for your well-considered feedback. I’ve read through your feedback a couple of times and thought I’d let you know it’s very actionable feedback and something I feel I can use to make me a better writer altogether.
– George Reese, Feature Screenplay “Reconquista”

It was nice to hear that the audio design was appreciated, particularly that knee stomp (Hi Stewart!). We spent a lot of time making it ‘wetter’, so it’s nice to hear it specifically mentioned. It was also nice to hear the production design was appreciated. The mention of that shot where everything is swept off the table got me particularly, as watching playback for that on set was the first moment I felt we really had something cool in the making.
– Harrison Norris, Short Film Director “A Peaceful Man”

I love their (Adventure/Action Festival) concept of multiple ways to get your story out: from logline, to 1st scene, to full screenplay. The fast turnaround for feedback is critical for me as I’m sure it is with many new writers — as many new drafts have been made by the time most contests provide feedback and results.
– David Kurtz, Feature Screenplay “Weecho”

– David Kurtz, Feature Screenplay “Weecho”

I was quite nervious at the beginning (watching the audience feedback of my film), but people seemed to react very positively so it really was a great experience.
– Pepe Gomez, Short Film Director “Knocked Out”

For unproduced writers, the real frustration after keystroking “The End” is trying to get noticed. There are so few outlets available for presenting your material. The FEEDBACK Festival appeals to me because my work now migrates from an unread concept into a produced staging, easily accessible by industry pros.
– David Redstone, Feature Screenplay “Fleet Week”

I was very happy that people really seemed to get my film. Action short films are sometimes a hard sell. There’s nothing so visceral, powerful and ugly as two people punching the s%&t out of each other with their fists. But weirdly enough, I think words have as much– maybe even more, destructive power! I wanted to make a film about human beings and the complexity of relationships. And how we can get so turned around because of our relationships. The audience GOT and LOVED the film and that made me so happy.
– Alice L. Lee, Short Film Director “The Good Boy”

I’ve been submitting “Wayfarers” to a bunch of places. The notion that some of it could be performed seemed interesting – it’s a twist on the usual screenplay contest, and in some ways, it’s more valuable to me as a writer-director.
– Arnon Z. Shorr, Feature Screenplay “Wayfayers”
