Adapting the Screenplay to either Novel or Graphic Novel?

I have two screenplays that I've finished, and I've read an article on "Scriptmags" about adapting your screenplay into an IP (Intellectual Property), in order to increase your chances for a sale.

What are the festival rules?

What are the festival rules? Is there a text that fobids a movie to compete with other movies in a festival where one of the organizers has some kind of involvement in the movie, even when his involvement is not in the creative aspect?

Steven Harris Anzelowitz

Michael Wearing
