SHORT SCRIPT CONTEST
Deadline July 20th

I was very impressed with the customer service at WILDsound. I had a question regarding my entry this year and I was contacted back immediately. I like that in a contest. Also, I was given feedback from WILDsound on my script and what I received was extremely helpful and detail oriented and it assisted me greatly in crafting my rewrite. The feedback from Wildsound strengthened my script to the point where it's placing better in other contests as well.

A note from the CEO of WILDsound:

When I officially took over the WILDsound Writing Festival in May 2013 from the old majority ownership, the new mandate was to showcase as many scripts, novels, plays, poems, and stories as possible. No more finalists or waiting for a reading for anyone who submitted. If your story is ready, we'll perform it no questions asked. It's that simple. As you can see since that time, we have showcased over 100 stories/scripts at our festival and will continue to showcase 1000s more by the end of the decade. SEE HERE recent winning readings.

Our mandate first and foremost is for all the submitters is to receive professional feedback from people in your industry, and we have an excellent rotation of talent who read and give you notes on your work. And they'll tell you what stage your writing piece is at. If it's not ready, you can re-submit your new draft anytime. If it's ready, then we'll make sure thousands of people see your reading online and you will obtain an agent if you do not yet have one.

When your work is ready, it benefits everyone. The festival, the people who approved your work, and of course the writer who wrote the piece. If we feel it is not ready, there is a reason as we try to find as much ready work as possible. Some months you'll see us performing over 20 reading videos, and no matter what we always perform at least 15 stories/scripts at the festival.

We have the platform on our popular network and YouTube channel to showcase many writers using our large database of professional actors always excited to perform your work.

All of the submission fees go to the writer's feedback, and the winning videos.

Sincerely,
Matthew Toffolo

ALL SUBMITTED SCRIPTS and FILMS GET FULL FEEDBACK - The goal of the WILDsound Film Festivals is to help everyone involved grow as an artist, so we will offer some kind of constructive criticism whether or not we accept your entry for the formal festival.

There is no film festival like this!
