No Festival Does a Better Job

My feature screenplay "Asylum", adapted from my novel, was an Official Selection in the 2021 Adapted Story Showcase. Ive seen no one do a better job posting winners and even Submissions Statistics on their website than festival sponsor Ink & Cinema. They even sent a personalized "Congratulations" notecardin real-life mail, a surprise Hollywood ending to a pleasant experience.
