What you'll learn in this film production class:

For many filmmakers, the first step on the road to recognition and distribution is a successful film festival run. Learn to navigate the challenges and nuances of the ever-changing festival circuit without emptying your wallet or limiting your chances for future opportunities. 

Find out which film festivals are best suited for you and your film, and once accepted, how to hold your own and take advantage of each film festival experience.

Topics include:
  • Researching Festivals
  • Strategizing Your Applications
  • Budgeting for Submission Fees
  • Preparing Your Submission
  • Being Accepted/Rejected
  • Attending Festivals
All you need to bring is yourself! This clinic will offer invaluable knowledge from a working artist in a discussion setting.

The price of workshop includes a one year DCTV Membership giving you access to equipment rentals, post production facilities, and discounts on workshops and events.

1. Class needed to be 30 minutes longer, especially with there being total beginners. Initially a good amount of time was spent answering questions, thus it is important to allow enough time to answer all. Subsequently, the syllabus was left to the end and less time to cover in depth. 2. Another option is to just create an intermediate level for people with festival experience versus total beginners. But ideally just extend the time by15-30mins to help. Or the last option is to just remove the short instructor film video shown & discussion, as this will help save time for student questions. 3. Insert instructor name with final email confirmation. 4. Add a way for students to contact each other after class for networking. Thanks
