Awards

Even though we haven't filmed Amy and Angel yet, there are many film festivals  around the world that have BEST SCREENPLAY categories. We felt the screenplay was so well written by Julia Verdin and Deedee Benkovich that we should enter the script into various film festivals and see how we do. Below is a summary of the results as of November 30, 2022.
