A guy named Carey Westbrook about submitting your screenplay into his festival? It’s a neo noir festival in LA, seven years running. He emailed me about one of my scripts and suggested I submit it. Just curious if anyone else got this.

Got one the other day. It was a noir of sorts, which suggested it wasn't entirely spam...
Had two more today for scripts which are not noir. Looks like they're trawling through the site to see who bites. I gave it a cursory look, couldn't quite figure out what they were offering or why I should bite.
Not for me.
Straight to spam.
My short scripts can be found here on my new & improved budget website:
"If this script is submitted, it will definitely receive an award, an audience, and the live promotional event your screenwriting ability deserves. How do I KNOW you will win an award? I am the co-owner of this festival and I say so."
Some of them were for titles I'd forgotten about. Like Deathly Shade of Blue. I almost wrote back saying that script was terrible and should never be filmed. I also got another for American Shark in London, probably the worst script I've ever written.
