  • I’ve entered a lot of contests and had never heard of Festigious but gave it a go because of the high caliber of judges. So to receive recognition and a win for Best Horror Screenplay exceeded my expectations. I couldn’t be happier with how this fest is run. Great communication and, clearly, the greatest group of judges ever! Thanks so much!

  • Thank you for selecting Bloodlines: The Mogadishu Diaries for Best Action Screenplay. I have competed in over 60 competitions, and Festigious and their sister programs have perfected the process. On time, Great communication and most of all many opportunities to win. This venue is a top pedigree program that I encourage any and every artist to enter. This is how it's done.
