Feedback Coverage for Scripts, Teleplays and Stageplays
For writers submitting a script, stageplay or teleplay we offer the benefit of providing each writer three (3) written analyses. All writers who enter will receive one (1) written feedback coverage from each of three (3) different, independent readers for all scripts, stageplays and teleplay entries at no extra charge even if they are not official selections of SURGE. We also offer the unique advantage of returning feedback to writers at three intervals as detailed here.
After organizing our film festival for over half a decade nationwide, we have found this schedule gives screenwriters worldwide the flexibility to submit updated versions of their scripts, at no extra charge, before receiving feedback, and it is one of the many very popular and often used benefits of SURGE Film Festival. Please note, each script, will only receive feedback coverage once from three (3) different independent readers for each script with a unique title. Only scripts that are resubmitted with a completely different title and a new submission fee, are given a new round of written feedback coverage.
Always remember, each of the 3 feedback pages are simply the opinions of human beings who, like anyone else, are not perfect.
