Winning script announced!!!

user
Mr. Bassi has chosen a winning script from the top 10: "Having read all the top ten screenplays I chose 'The Invention' as the winner. All the selected screenplays offered some beautiful moments.

Well, we also had a problem with the idea of a select few judges deciding if you are going to make it 'in' to a festival. So we decided to make a festival where the community decides what is good and what to fund! It...
