Hello & welcome to my new Q&A style blog!
As you may know, my posts are designed to inform and educate you on all things film festivals and film distribution. They’re also problem-solving blogs which will help resolve film festival related problems that you talented filmmakers are currently experiencing.
This blog post is a very special one as it is going to grow and grow into an encyclopaedia!
It will be updated every week with a new question and answer added to it. The questions are asked by you and answered by me
Email me your questions at [email protected] and I’ll ensure that they’ll get answered
Let’s begin –
Are there any other Film Festival submission platforms that I can submit my film to?
Yes. Film Freeway is by far the platform which dominates this market as there are over 8,000 festivals that you can submit your film to.
However, there are in fact several other platforms that you can submit your film to. These websites tend to have up to around 1,000 Film Festivals available that you can submit the film to. These include –
- Docfilmdepot (for Documentary Films)
Should I submit an assembly cut of my film to festival?
‘I would advise not to. An assembly cut is far too early in the post production process to be submitted for consideration to a Film Festival. Submitting a picture lock cut with a description of what else is currently being worked on and currently being completed will be absolutely fine.’
