Years of work with, running and being a part of film festivals as well as script competitions has taught us that bold claims of getting meetings with "someone from HBO" or having an "exec who has worked for Netflix" are often extremely embellished claims- click bait to get you to submit. Do the research, read the fine print and "subtext". It's your money, spend it on real opportunity!
