"NEVER BEFORE has a sponsor or judge of a film festival called to congratulate me. NEVER BEFORE has a film festival promoted my work to Producers and clicked me in on the emails. My script has won or placed in a number of festivals and Never Before have I felt as appreciated as the Latino Screenwriting Competition."
"I’m so delighted that LSC has launched a platform to showcase scripts and voices to Latino talent searching for their next project or production. Thank you again for the wonderful opportunity."
"I want to thank you for such a wonderful platform. I am drawn to the South American culture and all the wonderful archetypes woven in her history."
Last year's winners were personally introduced to several industry executives and our grand prize winner received a one hour script consultation with a top executive at Fictional Entity.
