Mastering the Film Submission Process
This professionally crafted e-book is designed to give you the tools needed to maximize your chances for success in the film festival circuit. With over 40 pages of tips and suggestions, this guide was compiled by filmmakers and experienced festival programmers to offer you the clearest and most straightforward advice for the submission process.
We’ve been working with film production and marketing in diverse capacities for a few years. More relevantly, we organize and program a range of independent film festivals around the world, with a fresh and ambitious outlook.
We’ve seen our share of amazing cinematic works and helped promote them beyond the festival circuit.
We’ve also seen our share of films with great potential that sadly fail the submission process. Sometimes, after investing years of their lives in a project, filmmakers feel they’ve done their part. Some feel that a film can stand on its own, without much marketing or promotion.
While that may have been true half a century ago, the reality nowadays is that the film market is oversaturated. Hundreds of great films are produced every day. It is now, more than ever, imperative to help your work stand out from the crowd.
Our handbook promises to do just that. Based on our collective experiences programming film festivals, we’ve come up with a list of essential Do’s and Don'ts covering the whole process of festival submissions. Think of it as an easy-to-use guidebook straight from the horse’s mouth.
