“Dr. Linda Seger has been the heart of Moondance since the very first film festival in 2000. Her popular workshops are always sold out, attendees come from around the world to learn from her, and many enthusiastic screenwriters make appointments with her in Moondance’s Consultations With the Pros opportunities during the event. Linda is talented, reliable, encouraging and spiritual. We all love the red cowboy boots she wears to present workshops, too! Thanks for being there, and helping to make Moondance such a well-respected international success, Linda!”
