COMEDY Festival Testimonial – October 24 2018

Screenwriter Rita Martinos (ON THE VERGE)

Well, the title of the festival is enough to know what’s influenced me. Supporting female artists is a beautiful thing, an opportunity than was rarely available in the past. To receive feedback is the cherry on top. The initial feedback I received was truly inspiring. As I’ve mentioned, I’ve let my script breathe for a while now, and this feedback has inspired me to take this script to the next level.
