Crime/Mystery Film & Writing Festival

 Troy Kelly (INDIAN COUNTY)

I chose this particular festival because it was genre specific. Since this was my first screenplay and my first foray into entering into contests like this, I wanted to be intentional in how and where I entered. Also, having the chance for a full reading from professional actors was a really exciting prospect!
