Thanks to all for this excellent day.  The time with the screenwriting panel, morning and afternoon, was enlightening well worth the festival pass in itself.  So thankful for all of your time and effort in putting this event together.  Wish I could have stuck around for the evening...  Looking forward to next year.

Sorry I'll miss this great event! I'll be finishing up coverage of my first TriBeCa Film Fest for Script Mag and Women You Should Know... But I'll be there in spirit.:) Can't wait to pull my own Greta Gerwig and bring more scripts (and films) to Sacramento. Have a great event!

I'm excitedly looking forward to experiencing the Festival and the American Screenwriters Conference!

I found one of Dr. Hunter’s books at a Goodwill in Atlanta 3 yrs ago.  I’d never been on a tv/film set in my life, but I loved moooovies!  

I was a prolific writer in my former life so I purchased the book on a whim thinking “why not?”  

Best advice in his book — if you want to write a great screenplay get on a set.

I did, and I did!

Thank you Mr. Hunter!!

You LITERALLY changed my life!!!

Yours Sincerely,

“Gina Who?”

I feel incredibly honored to have both ”Legacy,” and its prequel ”Luana’ accepted into the screenwriter's conference! I can't wait for May!
