Last year, at this time, I was anxiously awaiting to see if my screenplay would advance from quarterfinalist to semifinalist in the PAGE International Screenwriting Awards contest.
I did some rewriting, and last year, it advanced to Quarterfinalist (top 10%).
I was at a dim sum restaurant in San Francisco last year when I ran outside to the courtyard to check the website for the semi-finalist list – the top 25 entries in each genre. Out of around 4,400 scripts entered.
The script did not make that cut.
I did some rewriting.
So, here we are again.
It made the top 25% this year.
It made quarterfinalist this year.
And tomorrow – I find out if it makes semifinalist.
