Wildsound is a great festival to develop and get feedback to further develop screenplays. The interludes between allow one to work on other project and be fresh to optimize one’s script.
I enter competitions that offer feedback. This is something that is important to me. This festival not only offers feedback but offers the author the chance to see scenes actually acted out. This is worth the price alone. It is also local which is quite unique. I did well the first time I entered a screenplay and was quite impressed with the process. The feedback is useful and helped me to understand what the industry is looking for.
