get a dcp of your film made
These companies offer DCP creation services at reasonable prices. I have never used them personally but they come recommended to me by festival directors and filmmakers alike.
Zak Forsman's Artisan DCP - a filmmaker helping his fellow filmmakers
SimpleDCP - what it says on the tin
Cinema Concepts - I’ve had the pleasure of working with this team in their work for the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival. I don’t know what their rates are like for indie filmmakers but their work is top notch.
