Loved this contest! Walked away with Best Science Fiction feature. Nominated for Best Overall. I will definitely be back again next year with my new screenplays. Great comradery among the writers, mentors, and filmmakers. It felt like I walked into a room full of friends that I hadn't seen in a bit.
