hey guys, I can honestly say YOUR BOOK WORKS! Here is the latest review from The Huffington Post on our comedy short That's Opportunity Knocking!
Waving to you from the film festival circuit!

Look at what ESE Film Workshops Online book taught me to do!
I read and reread your wonderful book as I make my way through the Film Festival trenches. So GREAT to have a MAP!

A little article in Sierra Sun Times about the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival Awards award-winning comedy short That's Opportunity Knocking screening at The GO West Fest Sunday, July 17th at 5pm! Theater 2!

"Brilliant writing that is perfectly performed by an extremely strong cast." Movie-Blogger.com

Dear Rona & Monika,
Thank you so much for your book "Film Festivals: Your All Access Pass"! It gave me a clear MAP on how to organize all my scattered "creative feathers" and put them into a flight pattern for our comedy short "That's Opportunity Knocking"! I have your little "film festival goals" pinned up to my task wall and use it as a guide post to my current goals. As of this writing we are in 3 film festivals: Los Angeles Independent Film Festival Awards The GO West Fest & Joshua Tree International Film Festival! I owe it all to your wonderful coaching through your book! See you on the red carpet!
Stephen Foster
I ordered your book online and it has already been so helpful. THANK YOU guys so much for creating such a great road map to the indie world.
Come join Monika and I at the Bay Area Book Festival in Berkeley, CA - We'll be there on Saturday morning June 4th at 11am - We'll be in the MWP booth - MICHAEL WIESE PRODUCTIONS (Filmmaking Books)
