Film Festival Secrets: A Handbook for Independent Filmmakers
Many filmmakers struggle to find a place on the festival circuit because they don't have the right foundation for their submissions strategy.
They think that all film festivals are basically the same. (Wrong.)
They rush post-production to meet festival deadlines and consider test screenings to be optional. (Nope.)
They think that sending out form emails to hundreds of festivals to ask for fee waivers is a clever way to save money on submissions fees (so very, very wrong).
If you're stumped about where to start – if you’re losing sleep over which festivals are right for you or (worse) blindly submitting to festivals with late deadlines about to pass – get your hands on this book today. You’ll discover not only how festivals operate but also how veteran filmmakers craft a custom submissions strategy for each film they make . . . without wasting resources or damaging their reputations in the industry.
