BS Filmworks Screenplay Goes 2-for-2

The jury members of the Festigious International Film Festival selected BS Filmworks' latest feature screenplay "The Secret" to be part of their festival. This is the second straight festival for the screenplay from Lori Kay Allred.

"After the initial judging, the jury members felt like "The Secret" was a special heart-warming screenplay," said Festigious Executive Director Roy Zafrani. "Our jury members are looking forward to reviewing it again with the other competing finalists at the festival."

So far, Festigious has received more than 400 entries from more than 40 countries. Jurors include six-time-Emmy-nominated director Jeff Melman (Grey's Anatomy), London-based film actor Nigel Barber (Mission: Impossible - Rouge Nation) and LA actress Casey Ruggieri (Gone Girl.)

"We're really excited for our talented screenwriter Lori Kay to be going to another festival," said producer Brock Sherman. "We're looking forward to heading out to LA for the competition."
