One of the questions I hear most frequently from filmmakers is: "how can I narrow down the giant list of festivals out there to the ones that are the best for me?" Now I'm offering a seven-part email seminar to help you do just that.
7 Days to a Film Festival Strategy will help you through one of the most difficult parts of the festival process: creating a target list of festivals that are appropriate for your film. Most filmmakers struggle through this task, randomly submitting to festivals whose names they recognize or whose ads happen to appear in the most recent Withoutabox newsletter, without really thinking about what factors will give their films the best chance for acceptance. Unsurprisingly, the hit rate for this kind of submissions method is dismally low. No one can guarantee that your film will play at any particular festival, but there are ways to raise the odds and give your film a fighting chance on the festival circuit.
Lessons in this seminar include:
Demystifying the film festival process
How to create a festivals budget
Setting the right goals for your film
What to look for in a film festival
The secrets of festival research on the web
How to avoid scam festivals
Presenting your film with professional polish
Every day you'll get a new email with insider knowledge and practical exercises that will help you save money, avoid frustration, and understand how festivals work.
