Lots of scripts are rejected at film festivals. One of the reasons is that there are too many submissions. Writing a film is one thing. The next step is submitting your work to festivals. Then you realize that nothing is really happening. The Sunset Film Festival is different. Giving screenwriters the opportunity to be noticed is our priority.
