Top Ten Tips for Navigating the Film Festival Circuit

Maybe you're new to the world of film festivals. Or you've been at it a while and you're frustrated with the results. This hour-long online film festival seminar is designed to give you a solid foundation in these key areas of the film festival circuit:

  • Before you even think about submitting
  • Submissions strategy - saving money & finding the right fit
  • What to do on the ground at a film festival
  • Plus: your questions answered (as many as we can cram in during the allotted time!)

Author and Atlanta Film Festival staffer Chris Holland has been working with festivals and filmmakers for more than a decade, helping filmmakers connect with events and audiences. His book Film Festival Secrets is considered an essential handbook for filmmakers entering the festival scene.

Seats for this webinar are limited to allow attendees the best chance to get their individual questions answered. 

Praise for Chris' book Film Festival Secrets:

"I recently obtained this book and I must say, WOW!! What a golden load of information. I just shot a short film and have spent the last 6 months submitting it to festivals. I should have read this book before I submitted to my first festival as I missed out on pertinent information. This book is a proper roadmap to follow, not to mention that it makes sure you don't go into your submissions, your marketing, or attend a festival looking like an amateur. Can't recommend it enough." – Theodore Flood

"Having been through the rigors of film festival circuit: submission, rejection, acceptance, and premieres, I can confidently say that this is the book I needed when starting the process. I read the book, and it's right on point-- true, true, true. If you are an indie film maker, and you're thinking about dipping into the world of film festivals, you NEED to read this book." - Eric M. Levy
