Second Time the Charm?

Last year I submitted the Broken Dreams screenplay to the Austin Film Festival. Although the script had good success at other festivals, winning several, the script was not selected for the Austin festival – one of the majors.

For filming purposes, a rewrite for Broken Dreams was recently done. With the filming of Broken Dreams pushed back so Swamp Witch could be filmed next year, it become possible to submit to a few other festivals for next year. So today the Broken Dreams rewrite was submitted to the Austin Film Festival. Hopefully the second time is the charm.

The Austin Film Festival – to be held on October 22 – 29, 2020.


We are waiting to hear from the Forth Worth Indie Film Showcase today. Today (Friday, May31, 2019) is their notification date for the 2019 festival, to be held on July 25-27. We have submitted three projects for their consideration. Broken Dreams (Screenplay), and the newest screenplay by Ron Hervey, Swamp Witch, have been submitted. A short film, The Exit Bag, written and produced by Ron Hervey was also submitted. We will post the news here as soon as we get it.

Another Broken Dreams Screenplay Win

The Broken Dreams Screenplay has won the best short screenplay at the Calcasieu Parish Short Film Festival, held on Saturday, May 18th just outside Lake Charles, Louisiana.

This is the third fistival win for the screenplay, taking top short screenplay awards at both the Red Dirt Film Festival and the Sunny Side Up Film Festival earlier this year.

The wins bolster our confidence that we have a great screenplay to make our film from.

The script is also in consideration for three more festivals before it completes its film festival circuit run later this year.
