These film festivals also offer paid reviews and script feedback. They actually care about filmmakers.
But that’s just part of the story, you see I was invited to be an honorable juror and write for their outlet because of my experience as an independent filmmaker and screenwriter.
Now, thanks to the folks at the Cult Critic magazine, I’m a full-time freelance writer — All because they believed in me.
