"Winning Best Screenplay in the Screamfest screenplay competition has provided me with some great exposure in the industry. Since winning I have received interest from agents, managers and I have even developed and written a horror spec with a creative executive. The Screamfest mixers have also been a great way to meet motivated, like minded film makers and has given me other opportunities to get involved with the horror film community. I look forward to many more years of Screamfests! Thanks!" -
