Promises to be the best screenwriting  conference to hit Sac in...ever!

Thanks to all for this excellent day.  The time with the screenwriting panel, morning and afternoon, was enlightening well worth the festival pass in itself.  So thankful for all of your time and effort in putting this event together.  Wish I could have stuck around for the evening...  Looking forward to next year.

Sorry I'll miss this great event! I'll be finishing up coverage of my first TriBeCa Film Fest for Script Mag and Women You Should Know... But I'll be there in spirit.:) Can't wait to pull my own Greta Gerwig and bring more scripts (and films) to Sacramento. Have a great event!

I'm excitedly looking forward to experiencing the Festival and the American Screenwriters Conference!

Anyone know if the date for the American Screenwriters Conference is confirmed for April 29th? The website says 4/29 but the Brown Paper Ticket says April 21! I don't want to buy a ticket until it's corrected.

Gina L. Mulligan. 

The ticket IS good for the 29th. But because it is good for the FULL festival, which starts on the 21st, that is WHY it says the 21st. To HALT any confusion we've changed it to the 29th. Hope this helps!
