“Ever thought about scoping out a film festival? Sounds like fun, right? (Spoiler alert: It is…SO. MUCH. FUN.) That aside however, it is also a great place to meet and network with industry professionals in all forms. Who knows? You may just meet the producer who’s seeking the genre of the script you just wrote. To feel connected to a like-minded community is absolutely priceless.” – Excerpted from an ISA (International Screenwriters Association) newsletter.
