The goal is for the industry to request the film or script attached to the trailer.  ​

100 producers, distributors and studio execs, including Fox, Paramount and Disney, attended our last festival.  45 filmmakers received requests for their films or scripts.  Some had multiple requests which brought the total to 95.
