There's no getting around it: your success on the film festival circuit is a numbers game. Not only does your film have to be great, you have to get it to the right person at the right festival at the right time.

Concepts we'll cover include:
- The aspects of festival strategy you should consider during production
- How to find submissions bargains
- What festival directors really want and what persuades them to consider a film without a fee
