This guide has a very simple purpose: to help you improve the way you submit your work to film festivals.
Divided into 7 core tasks with a discussion of each task, the 16-page Toolkit is designed for quick reading and gives you concrete, actionable tasks to make your film submissions package better. Best of all, you'll get the insight you need to better understand what programmers look for and how to submit with confidence.
Those tasks are:
• Prepare 3 cover letters
• Create a submissions calendar
• Use a tracking spreadsheet
• Put your film online
• Go old school with DVDs
• Learn how (and when) to ask for fee waivers
• Review your entire package
If you did just one of these things each day, in a week you could have a submissions package that is better than 90% of the submissions I see at the film festival where I work now.
After downloading you’ll be added to the Film Festival Secrets newsletter, which you will receive occasionally. You may unsubscribe at any time.
