    We believe these films should be seen and be recognized for the efforts of the teams that put them together. The writers, directors, crew, actors and all the talented people involved in the production of a film, whether it is a feature or a short, deserve to have a chance to be seen. We are proud to give filmmakers an opportunity to show their work.

    The WILDsound Film and Screenplay Festival is the fastest growing Festival in the world today. A site that averages over 100,000 unique visitors a day.

    To go with our popular website www.wildsound.ca

    This is a festival geared to make sure your film/script gets shown in front of a large audience so you can actually see what people think of your work. We focus-group it with the audience, and our monthly guest industry moderator facilitates the audiences questions. This is a festival of networking and positive communication so you can take your filmmaking/screenwriting career to the next level.

    There is no judgment occurring in the moderation and the agenda is to have a 8-12 minute video of people talking positively about your film. (see our website for more details). It's a great selling point video to get your film to other festivals and get a distribution deal. (also see our popular YouTube channel - www.youtube.com/wildcardpic)

    Scripts get read at the monthly screenplay festival and then shown online for the whole world to see. Many writers obtain agents and get their idea/scripts optioned because of this.
