  1. Alas, I dont have a new script ready after I didnt place years ago with the one I finished. Would love to make it up to the screenings though!

  2. did you catch when the deadline is? i didn't see it on the website

  3. I guess August 15th is the final, but if you can get it by July 15th (er... Wednesday) it will be a bit cheaper for the submission... good luck!!
