On Film Festivals - Part 2

On Film Festivals (part one) HOLY CRAP, there are a lot of film festivals. How do you pick? Which ones? How many? Let's get into it. It won't be easy because it's natural for us artists and creators to think everyone will like or benefit from seeing our work, but the truth is, everything is not for everyone. FACT: You will not get into the majority of festivals you submit to. When looking at all the potential festivals you could submit to ask yourself, why submit my film here?
