Congratulations to the 2013 CSA Quarterfinalists

Each year, we are truly honored to read the work of those writers who enter the CSA's and want to extend a heartfelt thanks to each and every one for sharing their work with us. Thanks also to all our judges for their efforts.

After much careful deliberation, we are delighted to announce the 55 scripts advancing to the next round of the competition. Quarterfinalists are in the running for an invitation to the 2013 Retreat as well as the CineStory Fellowship, valued at over $17k.
